Red Sox Sign Matsuzaka

According to Jon Heyman of SI.com, the Red Sox have signed Daisuke Matsuzaka to a six-year, $52MM deal with an additional $8MM in incentives.  That makes him an $18.5MM player, if you are to include the posting fee.  If you're so inclined.  Boston now boasts the following starting rotation:

Daisuke Matsuzaka
Curt Schilling
Josh Beckett
Jon Papelbon
Tim Wakefield

I would assume Jon Lester is the sixth man, ready to step in when needed or when he proves he's better than Wakefield.
