Ok, here’s the deal with Matsui. He has been cleared by doctor to play outfield and DH. Out of loyalty, he will wait for Yanks to say yes or no. Then come Jan. he will listen to Sox. Slow process, but could happen. Sox are atop his list after Yanks said Multiple sources. Sox could go out to Cali next week and meet with him to check the knee in person. The good news for the Sox is Matsui told the Japanese media that its not about money or years, its about opportunity to play some OF. KW is about to talk and Japanese media is here looking for answers. It’s on.
