Henry: No deal yet

In an interview a few moments ago on Boston sports radio station WEEI 850 AM, Red Sox principal owner John W. Henry said that no deal between the Red Sox and pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka had been struck, at least not before the parties boarded a plane bound for Boston earlier today.

“Obviously we’re close enough that they’re all on a plane together,” Henry said, “but there’s been no deal.”

“Unless it’s happened on the plane and they decided not to call me,” he joked.
