Rockies re-sign Matsui

Postby avsfan4ever33 » Mon Nov 13, 2006 10:31 pm

The Rockies re-signed Kaz Matsui, a one year deal worth $1.5 million.

I'm glad this deal is done. Say what you will about Kaz while he was with New York, but in the purple pinstripes he was great!

.345, 2 HR, 19 RBI, 8 SB, 22 R, .392 OBP

Could he be a fluke? Sure. But I think it's worth the gamble, especially with the speed he brings to the table.

Yeah, love the deal. People hated K. Matsui because of how much he was getting paid and how little he was earning it. At 1.5 and his skills its a steal. Though with the deal it seems Barmes becomes a utility player or most likely trade bait. On another team, I really think he could still start. Barmes would be better than Guzman in Washington, maybe Bartlett in Min, and certainly better than Adams in Toronto.

The Rockies couldn't afford him at his old contract, but with this one, he's a good fit.

I guess he would play second? You have Atkins, Tulo, Barmes and Matsui for 3 positions... with Stewart on deck.

anybody remember what the "Posting fee" was for this flop?
Better yet, what were some of those, "Projections" ??

this could be the greatest thing ever, this posting fee.
Watching these rich spoiled rotten teams waste money is getting to be fun.
I think we need more Japanese Stars to come over ..

42 Million ..LMFAO!!!

Kaz wasn't posted, he was an FA. Also, the scouting reports suggested he had a very flawed swing that made him ripe for busting, even before he actually signed. So he actually projected to being a complete bust as well. Plus, I think the NPB-MLB translation is FAR kinder on pitchers than hitters.

He's going to be your 2b right? His range at ss was very bad.

Yes, Kaz will play 2B. As mentioned above, Barmes is nothing more than a utility infielder now.

Stewart is likely going to convert to the outfield.

Not a bad deal. I was mocked in derided on this forum 3 years ago for having the temerity to suggest that he was nothing more than a .280/15/15 guy vice the .30025/50 guy that many were predicting. Turns out I was wrong - he was not even that good. But I think a change of scenery is doing him a lot of good, and the Rockies should be able to get $1.5M in value from him.

Kaz is gonna play over Jamie Carroll??

We'll see...Carroll was very solid for the rox's this year. More likely to be 2B by comittee
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment
