Rantings and ravings from an admitted fan (as in fanatic!) of the Boston Red Sox. Updated only occasionally, but with my take on recent developments in Red Sox Nation. Updated more frequently during the end of the regular season and playoffs (hopefully).

Domo arigato, Mr. Henry

The Dice-Man cometh to Beantown. The Sox, after plunking down $51 million just to talk to Daisuke Matsuzaka (actually, it was $51 to talk to his agent, Scott Boras), the Sox came up with another $50 million to sign the Japanese phenom. But what’s $50 among friends. And if this guy lives up to his hype, it could be a good acquisition. He could be a mainstay in the Sox starting lineup for years to come, and I hope he is. But the whole situation is a little creepy. I mean, this is George Steinbrenner stuff, this shelling out of multi-million dollar contracts on guys who haven’t pitched in the bigs. I hope Dice-K (looks like that will be his nickname) lives up to his billing and wins 20 for the Sox for several years to come, but that is a ton of money. But hey, it’s not my money.
