Seibu, Say Me

Global Awareness
An abundance of confirming reports as well as a link on Major League Baseball’s official site all point to the miraculous: Buster Olney actually broke a major story.

A simultaneous announcement at 8 PM EST tonight by the commissioners’ offices of both the NPB and the MLB will likely confirm that the bidding for the rights to negotiate with Daisuke Matsuzaka was won by the Boston Red Sox.

And there is much rejoicing.

Will Nancy Drew be a Hardy Boy?
The Red Sox are in pursuit of former Dodgers outfielder J.D. Drew. He’s not hard to find; just visit your local hospital ward or nab him after he runs through his third base coach’s stop sign. He’ll be the one blocked from all those other phantom teams’ offers by Scott Boras.

That’s All, Foulkes!
Days after the Red Sox declined their team option, closer Keith Foulke declined his option and became a free agent on November 10.

He was wooed to Boston with a phone call from Bobby Orr. The hockey immortal told Foulke that if a player won a title in this town, he would be forever idolized.

And despite the futility of the past two seasons, there is no way this pitcher, whom some believed should have been World Series MVP, will ever be forgotten in the Hub.

Swing and a ground ball stabbed by Foulke. He has it -- he underhands to first. And the Boston Red Sox are the World Champions! For the first time in 86 years, the Red Sox have won baseball’s World Championship! Can you believe it?
