Matsuzaka Watch: Dialogue Continues
Ryan: Sox Know How Game is Played
Survey: Whom to Blame if No Dice?

"The word here in Japan is that Matsuzaka would find it rather difficult coming back to Japan should the Red Sox fail to sign him. He said his farewells to his fans, and they sent him off with their blessings. After the Red Sox bid of $51.1 million, he would look even more foolish should he fail to come to terms, particularly when it appears the Red Sox are offering him more money than proven Japanese major leaguers -- Matsui and Ichiro. Can't guarantee he won't come back, but in the minds of many here, there is more pressure for him to sign." -- 12.13.06, Mark Caprio quote from Bob Ryan column
