Boras Putting Words in Mouth of Mrs. Matsuzaka

From a Boston Globe article updating J.D. Drew's status (still unsigned) with the Red Sox (bottom of page):
When [Scott Boras] visited in Japan this summer, Matsuzaka's wife asked for a favor. "She wanted to know if I could get Daisuke the jersey of his favorite player," Boras said. "I thought it might be Ichiro, or [Hideki] Matsui. No -- it was Jason Varitek."

And this was before the Red Sox won bidding rights? Sounds fishy.
