Matsuzaka, at the Narita Airport:
First of all, I was very relieved. I haven't been able to sleep soundly for the past four or five days. I feel like I've just crossed the starting line. It has been difficult waiting. ...Shemp who?
I was shocked at first to hear the amount of the accepted offer. I never thought that the amount would be over $30 million. I'm happy that I've been valued so highly, but I also feel pressure to perform now. ...
I want to perform well in the majors, so I can be booed by our opponents' home field fans.
The batter I really look forward to facing is Ichiro-san.
We Love Daisuke. ... Will Fenway have the Dice-K Men?
