Matsui is Back to Attack
Wednesday, September 13, 2006
Advertisers across Japan let out a huge sigh of relief yesterday...and then promptly put up 90,823,487,912 new ads featuring Matsui's face

It took surgery and 4 arduous months of rehab, but the break heard ‘round the world has finally healed. Matsui returned to the lineup last night, making fans in the Bronx and a whole bunch of Japanese advertising execs very, very happy.

Way back in May when Mark Loretta maliciously struck dear Matsui down with a fly ball (sabotage mission?), it was unclear how long it would take for him to heal up or if he would even be able to get his skills back up to snuff after such a serious break. As recently as this month, ESPN Magazine speculated that even if Matsui did return to the lineup, the fact that the break was in his left wrist (his top hand when he bats, since he is a lefty) would prevent him from performing the way the Yankees have come to expect and enjoy during the past 3 years.

Matsui is not interested in “medical science” or “batting logistics”, though. He is interested in one thing: baseball. What he exhibited last night with his 4 hits (all off different pitchers) and 1 base-on-balls was more than just talent; Matsui is one seriously dedicated player.

As for the Yanks’ other wrist-breaker, Sheffield seems to have been lost in the excitement of Matsui’s long-awaited return. Shef is apparently eager to get back into the game, but since there is really nowhere to put him Torre is taking his time activating him. Melky, Abreu and Damon have the outfield under control; and with Matsui in the DH spot Giambi will be playing 1st base regularly; when Shef returns there will be some serious shuffling to do.

    Hey Yankees chick..

    where the hell is Michael Kay these days? Now with Jim Kaat retiring I'm just disappointed with the commenters..I mean Ken Singleton is good but he needs a strong counterpart, and Kaat filled that role. John Flaherty is a bore, and so is the guy covering tonight's game with him whose name I can't even remember even though I heard it a few minutes ago again!

    Michael Kay and Al leiter are the best broadcasters YES has...where are they?!

    Michael Kay was last seen stalking his ex-boyfriend Derek Jeter's swinging bachelor pad.

    Word is Jeter has a 90-day restraining order on Kay so that is why he is not at the stadium.

    Jeter apparently is now dating a certain New York City weatherman.

    i think kay has/had some family issues to deal with, if i'm not mistaken.
