Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHFast fact: This is the final year of Matsuzakas celebrated six-year, $52 million deal. Throw in the $51 million posting fee and he has cost them $2.1 million per win so far.
Lowdown: Matsuzaka will be pitching for his future once he returns around midseason. Valentine, who managed six seasons in Japan, could be his salvation after three rocky seasons in a row. If he can return to form, Matsuzaka could be a big bonus in the second half.
Bobby Vs view: All the reports are good. But he still has a ways to go."
