Hideki Matsui to Giants?
The hot rumor has the Yankees sending Hideki Matsui to the Giants for pitcher Jonathan Sanchez. My take on the rumor? I hope its true. Matsui is one of the few Yankee batters who Red Sox fans fear. I'd be glad if the Yankees traded him away for a young pitcher who basically would be middle relief help for the 2008 Yankees. If this was any other team but the Yankees - a move like this would be classified as a "salary dump". My guess is that if there is any validity to this rumor at all - then acquiring Sanchez would just be to include him or another Yankee pitching prospect into a sweetened deal for Johan Santana. It is more probable that nothing becomes of this rumor.
