It's a crazy kind of world, huh?!?

This news item has been all over the TV here....along with the earthquake in Northern Japan, 8.1 on the Richter...and I'll just say this...yes, maybe he is good....but.....

Boston paid $51 million just to talk to Japanese star Daisuke Matsuzaka!?!?!?!
(I got that out of the article on Yahoo by Jeff Passan . You can read it here: Red Sox's winning bid Bold move )

**Thursday--Actually, in today's paper it said that the precise bid was $51,111,111.11.
(Am thinking they really didn't need all those 1's as the next bid was only $38 million!!)

Makes Ichiro's $13.125 million look a bit like 'chump change', doesn't it?!?!

I am amazed and am thinking that I REALLY need to get Issei and Koji out on the least clubs could save money as they wouldn't need tranlsators 24 hours a day!!! where are their gloves...?!?! :-D
