There WILL Be An Abrupt Change......

This, from ESPN Sunday and Peter Gammons.........

"After all the hoopla surrounding the $51.1 million bid the Red Sox posted to talk to Daisuke Matsuzaka, it appears a contract may not materialize.
Boston essentially needs to get the Matsuzaka agreement done by Tuesday night so they can get him in Wednesday for a physical prior to the Thursday deadllne. One GM Friday said "it would be a shame for Matsuzaka and baseball to hold him out to try to force a change in the posting system." Boras has a very strong relationship with Theo Epstein, but he is willing to hold out players when necessary, such as Boston's current catcher and right fielder.
Will it get done? No one knows. But one can assume that the Red Sox are a far better team with Matsuzaka than without him, although he has never thrown a pitch in the AL East.
Negotiations between the team and the Japanese star pitcher have nearly broken down, the Boston Herald reported Sunday. A source familiar with the situation told the Herald late Saturday that unless "there is an abrupt change of course," the Red Sox will not strike a deal with Matsuzaka before the deadline midnight Thursday.
Attempts to reach Matsuzaka's agent, Scott Boras, were unsuccessful. The source blamed Boras for a lack of interest in the negotiations."

Peter here, and Boras really IS an ass! Flexibility is needed on BOTH sides. I for one am confident, although a little less so, that the stakes will become agreeable to both sides. So BorASS....get your sh*t together. You too Theo!

hey peter i havent heard from you in a while..
yeah if we don't get matsuzaka it will be disastrous. for the sox' reptuation in japan, for our reputation here, for matsuzaka himself who wants to play in the majors, for our rotation, and for the fans who will be extremely annoyed. exibit a: me. stupid scott boras. he needs to be thrown into a culvert. (vocab word! =] )
happy birthdayyyyyy
