Price of Fame ...

Word out of Brookline is that the Red Sox $52 million mound man Daisuke Matsuzaka is moving into the haute ’hood. The Japanese pitchman, with wife Tomoyo Shibata and their 1-year-old daughter, will join team brass John Henry, Larry Lucchino and Terry Francona in the official suburb of the Boston Red Sox prior to opening day. It’s supposed to be a big secret, but we do know that Dice-K is renting a luxe crib - that just got a kitchen makeover - in a gated community with 24-hour security. The rent, we’re told, is around $10,000 per month. Which seems like a bargain in Brookline! But don’t put the coffee cake in the oven just yet. Word is that Dice-K and T., a former Nippon TV personality dubbed “Rockets” by the Japanese press, plan to stay on the DL in Boston. The Matsuzakas, who are the celebrity equivalent of Brad and Angelina in Japan, will be camera-shy outside of the park - especially if they are with their daughter. “They are adamant that the baby never be photographed or made available to the public,” a Red Sox insider told the Track. “Tomoyo was a member of the Japanese media and she knows the score.”
