Will Rings & Countrymen Lure Tanaka To Hub?

It's clearly a longshot, but there's no reason to believe that Masahiro Tanaka wouldn't at least consider signing with the Boston Red Sox. As MassLive.com's Jason Mastrodonato points out, Boston is the only team with three World Series titles in the last decade. Moreover, the fact that two Japanese players—Koji Uehara and Junichi Tazawa—were integral parts of last year's championship can't hurt. Plus, as a right-handed pitcher, would you really want to face left-hand hitters with the stupidly-short porch in Yankee Stadium (AKA, The Concrete Bunker On 161st Street) at your back? And forget about Chavez Ravine—which has about as much character as a Kardashian family outing. Wrigley and the curse? Nah. So, why not take your talents to the 'lyric little bandbox' on Yawkey Way? You never know, folks, you never know.
