OFFICIAL...OFFICIAL...RED SOX HIGH BIDDERS.....

Say yes! I'll wait........Ok, I'm finished waiting......The Red Sox are the OFFICIAL ( YES--RIGHT NOW) high bidders in the Matsuzaka bidding war, although a war it was not. They were overmatched....round one to our Red Sox..round two to come, and quickly! Now......Scott Boras versus John Henry's wallet. We've gone THIS far.....there is a plan. And I like it. It is official...screams and handclaps are welcome. C'mon!! I'm just your friendly messenger! And I love that role...........

Hi Peter. Good news. I can't find a source, only speculation, including one that says the posting fee was $50 million(!). Do you have a secret informer??

The 42 million came from a Peter Gammons REPORT

As Far as I know, no official announcement will be made until 8:00pm tonight...

Brutal. That much money just to negotiate? That is amazingly wrong on so many levels. Glad it wasn't the Yankees, though.

Sul, the money just spent is going back to the club five-fold...but as far as the point that it sets a "high water" mark for insane spending, well, yeah....but the benefits (many) outweigh the minuses (NONE). A SHUTOUT! Nice to hear from you, as always....coming up on my one year anniversary on the twentieth! Holy crap! I will have an anniv. post on the 20th (Monday). Glad you're here!!!
