Boras relieved? Matsuzaka to Take Offer?

UPDATE: This from Rotoworld (for what that's worth).

"The Boston Herald reports that the Red Sox's latest offer to Daisuke Matsuzaka is for six years and a total of $48 million, while Matsuzaka is asking for $66 million over six years."

Asahi Television's evening news was just reporting on the big story, and had a man on the street in LA covering the wee morning beat on the Matsuzaka front. The LA reporter indicated that the Red Sox had in fact increased their offer, Boras seemed relieved, and the decision was now up to Matsuzaka about what he wants to do.

If all of that is true, and I read the tone of the report correctly, they believe that Daisuke is going to take the money. That said, I think no one knows. It's still all speculation.

Just thought I'd report that from Japan.

ESPN has reported that John Henry's private jet left Cali at noon EST with Theo and DICE-K aboard!! All along Boras has said that DICE-K would not fly to Boston until at least a preliminary agreement had been agreed to so looks GREAT!!
