Joel Sherman has a good piece up today, looking at Hideki for this season and beyond. He wrote this:
General manager Brian Cashman said: “I need Matsui’s knees to be fine and Posada to be able to catch to affect the length of the lineup.” Translation: The 2009 Yanks cannot have them sharing the [...]
