Resolved Question: Should the Yankees bring
The reason I brought this up was because of the Yankees .151 Batting Average with RISP against the Rangers in the ALCS. We know what kind of clutch hitter Matsui is and perhaps things may have been a bit different if he was still a Yankee. Aside from Cano, no one else was reliable enough to get the big hits when it mattered.

Resolved Question: Hideki Matsui to Mets
According to a report it was said that Hideki Matsui hinted that if the Yankees don't bring him back that he would like to give it a shot to join the Mets as their Leftfielder. The report also said that Matsui is willing to let the Mets see a medical report on him to prove that his knees will hold up as a Fielder. If these rumors/reports are true do you think the Mets should give him a shot if the Yanks don't bring him back?
