ESPN: Red Sox May Have Top Matsuzaka Bid
By mvyb, 10.11.2006, 15:21

This news still hasn't been confirmed, but it's gathering credibilty as I type this out.
The Boston Red Sox may have posted the top bid for the right to negotiate with Japanese right-hander Daisuke Matsuzaka, according to Major League Baseball sources.

There has been no official announcement, and the Seibu Lions, Matsuzaka's team in Japan, have until Tuesday to accept or reject the high bid.

But, according to officials monitoring the bidding, the Red Sox bid may be between $38 million and $45 million.

According to a source within Major League Baseball, as of Friday afternoon, Seibu had not informed MLB officially whether it had accepted the bid.

If these rumors are correct and the Siebu Lions accept the deal offered by the Sox ( I don't see why they wouldn't), this would be a huge move for Boston. The Sox need starting pitchers, and it appears they're opening their bank account in order to bring in one of the best on the market.
The Yankees must now turn their attentions to Barry Zito, Jeff Suppan, Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte, Mark Mulder, and other available starting pitchers....
[UPDATE] Peter Abraham over at The Journal News is telling us to calm down, nothing's happened yet. He makes some excellent points on why he doesn't believe the Sox would be spending this kind of money. So, head over there and check out his notes.
