Matsuzaka posting fee could go toward salary? Boston Herald suggests...

From Michael Silverman column in the Boston Herald: "Boras sees the posting fee to the Lions as completely separate from the contract he needs to negotiate. " (Of course, we all knew that).
  • "It is unclear, however, if the Red Sox and Lions could agree to use some portion of the posting fee to defray what the Red Sox pony up in the long-term contract.
"Such an arrangement would have to be conducted with the approval of all parties, but without such a deal, it is difficult to comprehend how the Red Sox would be able to propose a long-term contract worthy of Matsuzaka'’s talent."
  • USING PART OF THE POSTING FEE AS SALARY? WAS THIS POSSIBILITY MADE CLEAR TO ALL POSTERS? I THOUGHT IT HAD SPECIFICALLY BEEN PROHIBITED. ANY CLASS ACTION LAWYERS OUT THERE? NO? That's what I thought.
