From ESPN:

"We flew out unsolicited and called immediately upon landing and asked for a meeting not only with Scott but also with Daisuke," Epstein said. "We do have plans to meet tomorrow and at that time will present a second offer, an improved offer. We're not frustrated. We're just doing everything possible under the sun to get a deal done."

The Red Sox said on the call they also intend to sign Masumi Kuwata, a 38-year-old right-hander who has spent 21 seasons with the Yomiuri Giants.

Wow. Japanese pitchers certainly are the fad. If I were a Japanese dude, I'd grab a glove and some spikes, make up some phony baseball cards on a color printer and just start showing up at team offices. "Oh, no, you don't need to bid. I grant you the rights to negotiate with me. It's cool."

And you should get into that Japanese language class that Schill is in, along with our pitching coach.....communication is one of Curt's most recognized traits. Oh, I hope they get this done, by tomorrow, and then wing back to Boston with our new pitcher ready to take his physical. Please!
