Sox Meet Dice-K in LA; CBA Round 2

Red Sox brass had what Scott Boras called a "purely social, almost quaint" meeting with Daisuke Matsuzaka.

I was surprised to have a dinner with them. Meeting the Boston owner, GM, and the manager is the most impressive thing during this trip. I feel close to becoming a major league player.
Afterwards, Matsuzaka returned to Japan, leaving the negotiations to Boras.

Third is pretty good, considering the non-hockey, non-Toronto content. I found it odd that a Maple Leaf blog didn't win, until it hit me that said team receives 10-month, 24/7 coverage by all other media in Canada. Their fans don't need the 'net for info. And by inference, the Raptors receive less Canadian MSM coverage than any TO team.

Hey, thanks for the comment and adding my link, I'm going to set up a links section and I'll put you down, could you just change it to "The Boston Red Sox: From A Fan's Perspective" "red sox fanatic" is my user name. And I love a good sox debate. But remember, all we want is to win it all, all sox fans, thats what makes us Red Sox Nation.
