GODZILLA GETS AN OFFICE JOB
It's been reported today that Hideki Matsui has a job with the New York Yankees and it doesn't involve a bat.
According to MLB.com:
"Hideki Matsui has been named as a special advisor to general manager Brian Cashman, marking the former slugger's first full-time role with team brass.
Matsui is expected to work closely with Cashman and player development vice president Gary Denbo, and he will spend the majority of the 2015 season traveling throughout the Minor League system, focusing on aspects of hitting with managers, batting coaches and players.
The Yankees have scheduled a news conference for Wednesday morning at George M. Steinbrenner Field to formally introduce Matsui, 40, who has been in camp with the club as a guest instructor."
Gotta love that. You also have to wonder... if the Yankees didn't win the 2009 World Series and Matsui didn't have the game of his life to clinch it in Game 6.... would we be having this conversation?
That game alone secured his Yankee legacy for sure.
