The Mets scope Matsui's meds

Dec 3, 2009, 1:20 PM EDT

From an NPB Tracker tweet, the Mets have asked Hideki Matsui’s agent for the results of his latest physical. Matsui’s that is, not his agent’s. Those would be rather scary, I’d imagine, what with all of the cigar chomping those sorts of fellows do.

Probably just idle curiosity on the Mets’ part, but is it possible that they’re actually thinking about Matsui as an everyday outfielder? Even if his physical looks good, I can’t see him lasting a full season out in the grass.

    Well, let’s face it: a team with a bunch of catchers who can hardly catch or hit would be nicely complemented by an outfielder who can’t run.
    Why do I think that the Mets front office must have been out on a drinking binge with the Toronto Feather Lice’s front office at the winter meetings? Those decision-making meetings at both offices must have resembled the restaurant restroom scene from Cassavete’s Husbands.

    Great. All they need to do is re-sign Sheffield and Delgado, and sign Matt Stairs, and they’d have a softball team that would clean up. Hope their Workers Comp policy is paid up.

    It could be a good business decision to sign Matsui especially now that he is even more of a legend in Japan.

    Have they considered anybody under 38 years old? This team needs to get younger, not older. No disrespect to Matsui, as a Yankee fan I love the guy, but he is exactly what the Mets DO NOT need right now, and aging player, 2 knee operations a year ago, no mobility to play where? Outfield? 1st Base? Yhe braves are improving, the Phillies are improving, and the Mets are looking to start a Senior League team. How about rebuilding this franchise with some youth, athleticism, and defense?

    Moises Alou. Gary Sheffield. This isn’t really a surprise, is it? Minaya is also considering Jose Guillen. If I didn’t know better, I’d think he was trying to get himself fired. Sadly, this is how he thinks you build a team.
