If he hits 15-20 HRs with a .290+ AVG between now and the end of the season, that puts him in very rare company. I'd take it.

100+ runs, 25 hrs, 110 rbis, .280+ avg seems like a mid round OFer to me. where did you take him, like the 4th round or something?

As stated in another thread, it may just be that the real Matsui is more like the version we saw in 2003 than last year. That's not bad at all, but it's not the superstar level many of us pegged him to be off last season.

Hes suffering from the fact that all the other Yankee hitters are sucking horribly. I'm very disappointed in him this year.

I still think he will hit around .300 but I wouldn't count on 30+ HR.

100 R, 25 HR, 120 RBI, .300 BA isn't bad. People got their expectations up too high after his great first week.

He could have a big second half. If the NYY ever all start hitting at once, that lineup will be scary. With Jeter, Arod, Shef, Matsui, Posada it could spell a monster second half.

But you have to treat it as a buy low, meaning don't give up 2-3rd round talent. If you can grab him for sexson, glaus, floyd type guys (who WILL break down) I'd do it.

He will do well from here forward. If I had him, I would be happy to hang on to him since his trade value is low right now.

Matsui has been doing bad like some of his other Yankee team mates. I think when the team starts to turn it around in general, so will he. I see him having a big summer. I think my team is ready for a huge 2nd half with all of the buy-low players I have; Chavez, Matsui, Wells, Huff, and Morneau.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.
