Take this for what it is worth from waswatching.com.

From Pride of the Yankees (with a hat tip to the comments section at Bronx Banter) -

"...what I heard from the same source who is close to negotiations that what will happen is that Selig, Boras, and Seibu have a deal in place, where Boras pays Seibu $25 mil (1/2 the Red Sox bid) and he owns the rights to Matsuzaka, and puts him on the market BY X-MAS for the highest bidder, and Selig has signed off on it..."

Even though Selig has stated that the posting process needs to be revamped, Bud would not allow Boras to own Dice-K. It would be like selling a gun to the guy who wants to shot you. Selig will make the Sox - Seibu - Dice-K deal work. There is too much is at stake. It would not surprise me to learn years later that Selig allocated say $13.11 million or the reported difference between the first and second highest bids to the Sox from the Commissioner's Discretionary Fund over the life of Dice-K's contract.
