Hideki Matsui silently producing

matsui2 It’s tough to find the bright side of a guy who is batting .256 and can’t run or play the field. Hideki Matsui fits that description, but does in fact have a bright side: his production.

In 270 at bats, he has tallied 16 doubles,15 homers and 46 RBIs to go along with a .360 OBP. To put those totals in a full-season perspective, multiply them by two. That’s 32 doubles, 30 homers and 92 RBIs; also known as a very good year for a dwindling DH.

I know there is hardly any chance whatsoever the Yankees re-sign him after this season, but still, this guy is a respectable ballplayer and a true hitter. If he continues this production and boosts his average up a little, he might find a job in the majors for 2010.
