The Yanks lost out on the Matsuzaka bidding as the Red Sox hope that they've landed another Pedro Martinez. However, the Bombers are this close to signing Mike Mussina to a two-year deal: reports from the Post and the News.
I would have loved to see Matsuzaka in pinstripes. Even though he'll be pitching for Boston I still hope he does well in the majors. The Yankees did hold their own against Pedro, after all. When the Sox ink Matsuzaka he sure will make them a tougher team. That'll give the Yankee-Sox rivalry more juice, which isn't all bad.
