Just guestimating, they're going to pay over 100 mil when all is said and done.
Been a die-hard Red Sox fan since I was 6 years old. So here is my reason why they did that.

The only reason I think Boston bid for this guy was to snake him from the Yankees. He was coveted by the Yanks b/c they have abysmal pitching. So if the Sox can't negotiate a contract he stays in Japan. No matter what Boston keeps him out of NY. I think they treated this as their version of Johnny "Turncoat" Damon.
