World Series trophy embarks on Asian tour

Jan 29, 2010, 6:15 PM EDT

The Yankees are taking the World Series trophy on an Asian tour next week, hitting Tokyo, Beijing and ending up in Hong Kong.  According to the story, Brian Cashman will be in the delegation.

He had better watch his back. After letting Hideki Matsui walk, I have a feeling someone is going to be all over him.

    I’m wondering now if all the thousands of Hideki Matusi bobbleheads of various sizes being sold along with the votive offerings at the bazaar on the north side of the Shoji Temple in Akasuka have been resprayed in Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Cucamonga and Azusa uniforms by now.
    Definitely a high point of a visit to Tokyo – a quarter mile of stalls under a huge tent with Matsui dolls oscillating merrily amongst the various dharmapalas with their dozens of arms, fierce, world-destroying expressions and dorje prepared to strike through the veils of illusion cast by Maya.
    .
    You have to wonder if the dharmapalas are as ready to strike through Cashman’s bullshit about the Borg budget as they are through all the other cosmic delusions. I figure after all these years of watching people leaving Matsui bobbleheads and offerings to the Tathagata, they must have developed some degree of familiarity with their fellow demiurge – and they all looked pretty pissed off to begin with.

    From the press release made by the MLB Cafe Tokyo:
    “New York Yankees/Giants News of the World Series Trophy & Trophy Series Japan Joint Exhibition.

    Crowds will probably not be expected in Beijing.

    “Crowds will probably not be expected in Beijing.”
    Well, not if they plan to look up the address of the cafe on Google, at any rate.
