Yep, Hideki Matsui, the Yankees second best hitter with runners in scoring position, could make his long awaited return tomorrow in Toronto (and not a moment too soon). He won't play any position but DH, so Justin Christian or Brett Gardner will likely be demoted.
- Regarding Saturday's game, it will be either Hughes or Pavano. My vote goes to Carl(a) for several reasons: he has more major league experience, he was better in his last minor league game, he's getting paid more, and there's no need to protect him (via pitch counts).
- If you're interested in the negotiating process, you'll love this interview with Nationals' GM Jim Bowden. He talks at length about the draft and the difficulties in (not) signing ninth overall pick Aaron Crow.
