Updating a past story: Scott Boras Wants To Eat Your Children, the Boston Red Sox have officially won the right to pay the Seibu Lions a posting fee for Daisuke Matsuzaka if the club is able to sign Mr. Matsuzaka. The posting fee prediction on October 25th was anywhere between $17 million to $28 million. I was only about $30 million dollars off target.
The Red Sox have agreed to pay the Lions $51.1 million if Marsuzaka signs within the next 30 days [The $51 million conversation]. I really hope that the Sox beat out another team’s bid by .1 million!
