New, 8 comments
The Red Sox and Daisuke Matsuzaka have agreed to a six year deal, worth 52 million dollars. Owner John Henry and Theo Epstein went to L.A. Monday in hopes of striking a deal and then fly back with Matsuzaka for a physical and press conference. Matsuzaka, 26, was posted by the Seibu Lions last month and the Red Sox posted the highest bid at 51.1 million dollars. The former WBC MVP will join their rotation in the number two or three spot.
