“A Red Sox source said that the Daisuke Matsuzaka is ‘very much’ in the team’s plans for 2011, and that there is no planned effort to shed the pitcher.”
I have to admit, though I have never heard it mentioned or reported, I’ve often wondered, assuming the Mets feel the need to trade Carlos Beltran, could the two sides have connected on a deal involving Matsuzaka?
I don’t want to see Beltran traded. I’m just thinking, if he has to go, either because it’s part of a larger plan, or because he wants out, who knows, if it has to happen, where could he fit in? Boston seems to make sense: the money is close, the Mets need a starter, they bid heavily on Dice-K when he was a free agent coming to America, the Sox reportedly have interest in an outfielder with more power, and so it seems to make sense in structure.
