Welcome Back, 'Sui
Well, it's not really breaking news, but Hideki Matsui is back in the Bronx. 4 years, $52M (that's a $13M per year average for the math challenged).
It's probably an overpayment for one of his ability, but the factors of a weak FA market and Japanese marketing of course came into play. Essentially, Cash gave Bernie's old contract to Matsui. It's obviously an upgrade and I'm glad to have Gojira back in stripes.
In other news, former two time Yankees megastars Luis Sojo and Roberto Kelly will be skippers in the World Baseball Classic, the sham even perpetrated upon us by Bud Selig this Spring. Sojo will take the reigns for Venezuela and Kelly will manage for Panama.
