Here we finally have a decent source giving us some Daisuke Matsuzaka info. Jan Hubbard of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram has a baseball official indicating something close to a $30MM bid. Of the course, the language in the article uses plenty of qualifiers like "may" and "have a chance." Can’t blame ’em for hedging their bets a little.
We’ve also got a video in which Boston Globe sportswriter Jackie MacMullan says that Matsuzaka is "going to go out west to the Angels by all accounts." Not to question her info, but in watching the video is appeared that she did not know Matsuzaka’s name. I ran this one by my Angels source and even he could not confirm whether the Halos made a bid. It was a stealth process.
Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe has a source putting two different teams over a $20MM bid.
Mike Plugh is all over the developing story at the Matsuzaka Watch.
