$51.1 Million, Lost in Translation

In case you live under a rock, the Red Sox shoveled out $51.1 million to win the bid this week to negotiate with Daisuke Matsuzaka from the Seibu Lions of Japan’s Pacific League.

Being a Sox fan, I figured I’d head over to the Seibu Lions web site and get to know him better. Unfortunately, the entire site is in Japanese, so I was forced to turn to my sister to translate his profile for me.

Most of the details make sense: years pro, birthdate, hometown, school, height,  weight, and throwing arm. But the detail highlighted in red? His blood type.

So, Red Sox fans, now you know: Daisuke Matsuzaka’s blood type is type O. This will come in handy in the case that you ever need a blood transfusion from your team’s overpaid star pitcher.

(And not to ruin it for you, but for the sake of showing that I’m not completely ignorant, go ahead and read about the Japanese Blood Type Theory of Personality.)
