Oh awesome....Mets kicking Matsui's tires
An aging player everyone else thinks will break down, in a non DH league. Awesome. I'm psyched.
Don't underestimate that Japanese marketing. Seriously not my usual sarcasm. "Millions" is what it is usually called...and it builds your global brand. So if you pay Matsui say $10 million, he never plays, but he brings in $11 million in ads, sure you and I are furious but Fred isn't. Just sayin'
It's more about the player. It's a TV network and ads.
