Daisuke Matsuzaka Meets Boston

Japanese ace pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka landed in Boston yesterday to a media frenzy as local television stations broadcast his landing at Hanscom Field in Bedford on a private jet.

The pitcher reportedly has passed a physical examination at Mass General Hospital and will announce the finalization of a $52 million dollar contract as the Red Sox new star pitcher.

Baseball analyst Glenn Stout speaks with WBUR's Bob Oakes about Matsuzaka and what his presence means for the future of Boston's favorite baseball team.
