Matsui a Yankee for Four More Years - - Oh, and Sturtze Gets One More Year
Tuesday, November 15, 2005
The Yankees and Matsui have come to terms on a contract, a mere hours before the deadline stipulated by his previous contract. This new deal ensures that Matsui will be in pinstripes for four more years and living the high life while he’s at it - - he’ll have a sweet $52 million to play with! Cynics have already begun the obligatory “the Yankees are overpaying for him!” rants, which I find absolutely ridiculous. Matsui has been very solid, very steady, and offers the Yankees organization a huge contingent of fans that they otherwise may not draw.

And in other Yankees contract news, Tanyon “Sturtze the Hurtze” will be with us for another year. The Yanks decided to exercise the $1.5 million option on his contract as it would have cost them $150,000 to buy him out. In sixty-three relief appearances last year he let a scary forty-three runs cross the plate in just seventy-eight innings, giving him a season ERA of 4.73. I’m probably not the only one groaning at this; wasn’t improving the bullpen supposed to be at the top of the “to-do” list this off season?! The good news is that during my tour of Yankee Stadium last season I did notice that Sturtze keeps a copy of US Magazine in his locker: if he can’t throw strikes, at least he’ll be up to date on the latest celebrity gossip.

    Not so sure I agree with the Sturtze move...he seems to have regressed to pre-NY levels.

    I'm fine with Cy Sturtze returning, he was overworked last year and that spot start totally killed his arm. When used in short sharp hits, Sturtze was very effective and if he's the 4th reliever (behind Mo, Ryan and either Flash or Farnsworth) then we'll have a very good pen.

    due to the fact that we have no one else, i suppose we could do worse than sturtze. hopefully the off season will prove to be rejuvinating and restful for his arm.
