Good news on Matsui


New York Yankees outfielder Hideki Matsui has declared himself
100 percent healthy after going 1-for-3 with an RBI in his second rehab
assignment with the Class A Tampa Yankees this past Saturday.
Hideki Matsui had been placed on the 15-day disabled list April 8 with a strained left
hamstring is hoping to rejoin the Yankees on Monday and be in the line up when they open their series in Tampa against the Devil Rays. "Physically, I’m fine," Matsui said through an interpreter. "I want to
join the team as soon as possible and be a strength to them … help them win."

Hideki had injured the hamstring while running out a grounder on April 7, but
said he had "no worries" about it now. He will get some simulated at-bats tomorrow at the team’s training complex in
Tampa before being activated Monday and joining the team in Saint Petersburg.

    i like Melky Cabrera, but his bat just hasn’t been there; of course with Matsui back, the Yankees lose a bit of speed and Melky’s gun for an arm; at this point though, i’d rather have another big bat in the lineup

    I’m with levelboss. I respect Melky’s defensive prowess but, with other injuries and some dead parts of the lineup (mainly Mientkiewicz, whose defense I respect even more than Melky’s), they need the bats. Matsui can flat-out hit, and until the Yankees get a full complement of starting pitchers, either through returning from injuries, trades, signing Clemens, call-ups, or whatever, they just may need to outscore teams at times. Matsui allows them to do that far more than Melky, who it is safe to say is in a sohpomore slump at the plate (.210), and not for lack of playing time.

    I really like your blog, and have added to my blog’s list of Yankees sites. Keep up the good work. Are you going to those games at the beginning of May?

    I actually have a mini plan for the Rangers that I purchase and renew each year partly because if you hold any type of ticket plan you are allowed to buy individual game tickets to single games one week before they go on sale to the general public (which is usually around the last week of February)
    So, I always get killer seats for the Yankees series.

    This year I’m six rows behind home plate.

    Hey, thanks for the comments on my blog. I have no idea why Kam Loe wasn’t in the opening rotation, but I’m glad he’s there now. I know it’s early, but I really want McCarthy to work out because the rangers gave up something big when they traded away John Danks.


    PS: I’ll return the linkage 🙂

    Nice seats Micheal hope you get to see some A-Bombs and Yankee victories! Matsui coming back can do nothing but help solidify the Yankee lineup, we all welcome him and his clutch bat back!
