Lucchino Goes Front and Center, and Far East for Dice-K

"We are hopeful the negotiations process will complete itself fairly quickly, but knowing human nature we have a 30-day period. One of the reasons we came here was to make clear to the Japanese baseball community, to Seibu and to the Matsuzaka fans that we are determined to sign Matsuzaka-san." -- 11.28.06, Larry Lucchino, Red Sox CEO

Sox to Pay Lions Share of Dice-K's Salary
But Will Seibu Share the Contract Load?

"An example of what Lucchino and the Lions could be discussing is the Red Sox being unwilling to go beyond an average annual salary of $9 million. If an acceptable middle ground of $11 million per year for, say, five years would get a deal done, the Lions could subtract $10 million from the $51.11 million owed them in order to bridge the gap." -- 11.28.06, Michael Silverman, Boston Herald
