Just saw the Sox inked Saito also..
Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports that the Red Sox have agreed to terms with Takashi Saito on a one-year contract with a team option for 2010.
According to Rosenthal, the deal includes around $2 million in guaranteed money with an additional $5 million or so in potential incentives. Elbow problems make the 39-year-old Saito a question mark, but when healthy he's been one of the most dominant relievers in baseball over the past three seasons, saving 81 games with a 1.95 ERA and 245/52 K/BB ratio in 189 2/3 innings. Much like the John Smoltz and Rocco Baldelli signings, Saito represents a low-risk, high-upside gamble for Boston
Downright dangerous and better than the Yanks pitching staff
