Sox are getting Hideki Matsui

… says Bob Klapisch in his where-do-free-agents-end-up column:

GM Ken Williams said he wouldn’t be able to afford Matsui after his World Series MVP performance, but the White Sox are nevertheless interested. They need a left-handed power hitter to replace Jim Thome — and Matsui will need a home after he discovers how lean the market is. The Yankees wish him well, but have no plans to bring him back. Matsui earned $13 million in 2009 but at age 35 with two bad knees that prevent him from playing the field, he’ll have to accept far less to continue his career in the majors. A deal with the White Sox makes sense on both sides.
