Yes, there is no new Japanese employee on John Henry's jet alongside LL and Theo. Scott Boras(s) remains an immovable obstacle to any common sense talks, a mute testament to stupidity. Or a man with his own agenda, an agenda that seems not to have his client's wishes included. The more this story evolves, the stranger this man seems. Maybe important details have not been revealed. Hopefully they will be. And now, at 9AM Wednesday, we're down to hours. As Theo said, the ball is in DMat's court. Unfortunately, his courtside partner is one Scott Boras. Stay tuned. I was up last night at midnight, 2am and 4am to tune into ESPN radio sports news, ready to dash downstairs to write an early morning joyous post. But NOOOOOOO!
