sunrise! surprise! civilized man, you were keeper to me, but now your animal is free:
Matsuzaka is en route to Boston. That means whatever hope I had of the deal falling apart has evaporated. The Times reported for the last two days that Scott Boras might be trying to sabotage the arrangement in the hope that he could quickly renegotiate an even more absurdly lucrative deal for the Heavenly Child of the High School Baseball Classic. If that were true, only one team could possibly afford him; and it would also mean that the Sox had hugely messed up their postseason acquisitions. But oh well. Barring some massive breakdown, Matsuzaka will pitch for the Red Sox.

One last thing. I've noticed that Boras is trying to market Matsuzaka as "D-Mat." Please. The natural nickname for him is "Dice."

Yeah, I let myself get lost in that dream for a minute as well.

This makes the re-acquisition of Andy all the more important.

See, that's your problem Haggai. Always a Yankee in the non-baseball sense.

Give in to your emotions Haggai, feel Steinbrenner's millions making you stronger...

Fight Haggai! Do Not Go Into the Light!

In other topics, how did I miss the obviousness of "Dice"?
