CUBS won the bidding for Matsuzaka??

My friend whom is just as addicted to baseball knowledge as we are all in NY just called me and said that the NY AM radio station he was listening to reported that the CUBS won the bidding for Matsuzaka. Reportedly the CUBS offered the Seibu Lions $28 million while the Yankees offered $27. He also went on to mention that tampering infractions were a possiblity.

Take it for what it's worth right now....just a rumor.....
