Red Sox to Sign Hideki Okajima

Thursday, November 30, 2006

When Larry Luccino went to Japan, he focused on Daisuke Matsuzaka, however, that is not all he worked on. Luccino discussed a deal with left-handed specialist, although he has been used as a set-up man and could grow into that role for the Sox. He is said not to throw very hard, but has an amazing curveball. By signing Okajima, it could probably help their chances of lowering the price for Matsuzaka.
