Hideki Matsui signing another great move by Tampa Devil Rays

Once agin the Tampa Bay Rays quietly made another move that could really help them when it comes playoff time. The Rays this week signed Hideki Matsui to a minor league deal and he is working out in Port Charlotte before being assigned to Triple A.

It is a brilliant move by the club. They don’t risk much with the signing and if he proves he can still hit, it gives them another major weapon in the lineup. While right now, the lineup (when Evan Longoria returns) seems fine, I am not sold on Luke Scott at DH. Especially in the playoffs. But Matsui, now there is a guy who could hurt teams.

This is what the Rays do and do well. They have a great nucleus of young talent and they find these veterans at a bargain price that seem to just keep panning out.
