Is the price right?

Daisuke Matsuzaka, the most dominant pitcher in Japanese baseball for the last eight seasons, had his path to the Majors cleared when the Seibu Lions officially agreed to release the 26-year-old flamethrower. Seibu said Matsuzaka's rights will be ''posted'' meaning that all 30 major league teams can bid on the rights. The club with the highest bid will gain the right to attempt to sign the pitcher.

In keeping with Japanese tradition, rich white business men will be bidding for the services of hot young Japanese meat. Only this shouldn’t be confused with Kobe beef. Kobe’s beef is safe and sound back in LA.
