Matsuzaka not a windfall for Sox after all

Check out this very interesting story by Rob Bradford in the Lawrence (Mass.) Eagle-Tribune on Daisuke Matsuzaka.

Red Sox executives admit that signing the Japanese star is not going to be an economic windfall. In other words, they invested $103 million on his pitching. Marketing has nothing to do with it.

Hey, who knows? The guy could be Koufax. But $103 million is a lot of scratch for a pitcher who has never thrown a ball in the big leagues. It’s going to be interesting to see whether it works out over the long term.
