Olney: Red Sox Placed Top Matsuzaka Bid?

A little while ago, Buster Olney reported that the Red Sox may have won the Daisuke Matsuzaka bid with an amount between $38MM and $45MM.

Also, please email me if you can read Taiwanese.  And yes, I might mean Mandarin.  I can be ignorant sometimes.  Don’t take offense.  Anyway, I am tracking down a possible Matsuzaka/Yankees story.

UPDATE: Many kind folks have written in to help translate the above Yahoo article.  The general consensus is that the sources and reporting quality are subpar in this case and the article should be ignored as any sign that the Yankees have won the bid.

UPDATE 2:  Olney updated the above link to include info from a source that the Rangers may have bid $22MM.
