The White Sox are interested in Hideki Matsui

Jon Heyman reports that the White Sox are talking to free agent Hideki Matsui. He makes sense if they can’t get anyone else to play DH. He can still hit the long ball, and there aren’t many places more conducive to the long ball than U.S. Cellular Field.

I hope this holds off for a couple more weeks, though, because if it does, my two favorite things from last year’s Winter Meetings — (a) Japanese reporters asking everyone about whether they want Matsui on their team; and (b) Ozzie Guillen’s strident quotes about not wanting a dedicated DH — will both be relevant again.

    I hate the DH waffling that the White Sox are going through. They were bit last year by letting go both Dye and Thome, and are now looking to replace them with Mastui or Adam Dunn. Instead of these slugger experiments, they should be looking for a quality Catcher, finding a way to keep Konerko, and perhaps re-signing Thome on a flier, a fan-favorite one BTW.
