It seems as if years of playing on artificial turf and never missing a game in Japan have caught up with Hideki Matsui – as he’s missed huge chunks of the season in two of the last three years. When healthy, Godzilla can still hit. And, if healthy, he should be the Yankees primary D.H. in 2009. But, can Matsui stay healthy?
If you told me Hideki was going to play less than 130 games for the Yankees in 2009, I wouldn’t fight you too hard over it.
