Matsuzaka deal may be Done

Extra Bases:

The Red Sox contingent in Southern California is flying back to Boston with pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka and his agent, Scott Boras, on board.

"You can assume that a deal is done or close," said one source with direct knowledge of the talks.

Team owner John W. Henry confirmed that Boras and Matsuzaka were flying back with the team, writing in an e-mail to the Associated Press: "They all took off together."

We don't know how much, but we do know it's going to be a lot. If it's less than $14 million a year, I think we've got a decent deal.
