Hideki. The injury broke a streak of 518 games consecutive games played. It also hurts my fantasy baseball team. It didn't look good either.

My guess is Steinbrenner goes after El Caballo to take his place.

No way. That's an expensive player to use for only 6 weeks. Expect Bernie to play everyday

I would guess he'll be out a lot longer than six weeks. From someone who broke the same bone and was forced to have surgery, I would venture to say three months.

That may be true, but as far as Carlos goes.....he's on a team that's far from out of it, and Selig doesn't own that team any more. I'm sure that new owner would like more than anything else to lock Carlos up

MLB.com said it was fractured, so 6-8 weeks would make sense.

Oh no doubt. No way in hell the Brewers trade him to the Yankees.

The video is on the NYY website. It was pretty ugly, he rolled his wrist trying to make a diving headfirst catch.

Yankees announcer, Michael Kay, also breaks something (http://www.yankblog.com/2006/05/11/michael-kay-farts-on-the-air/) during tonight's game. :o:

Just my luck tonight. I have him and Rowand on my fantasy team... not to mention Colon and Garland, too. Need I mention my team is not doing too well? They're all friggin injured!

I would be surprised if he was back this year. The injury itself is bad enough, but then the rehab needed to regain his effectiveness at the plate is going to be important, too. That is a gruesome injury. I'm no doctor, but any little wrist injury really cuts into your ability to swing the bat effectively.

You hate to see those types of injuries happen to anyone. Something so routine and then in a instant your done. The way that looked I'd be surprised if he makes it back this year.

Hideki, Yanks bend & break
Hideki Matsui walked off the field in the first inning last night, his left hand dangling limply as if it were held by string. He was loaded into an ambulance while still in uniform and the Yankees could only wonder if it would be the last time this season that they would see their left fielder wearing pinstripes.

The Yanks need a LF. They have tons of cash. They are in the media capital of the world.

Of all the Yankees, why'd it have to happen to this one? Out three months was the last I heard.

Oh please - like that would ever happen.


I feel bad for Matsui though. He's a Yankee, which is bad enough, but reportably a good guy.

Keith Olbermann thinks they'll bring in Sammy to replace him.

That was nasty. Makes Rowand's injury look like a paper cut.

Get well soon, Matsui-san.

A rumor that the Yanks might go after AbreuThe problem with any Yankees trade is that they don't have much to offer that they can afford to give up.

Edit: Besides, with Rowand on DL, the Phils can't afford to trade Abreu right now.

I can see the Yanks going after Soriano.

I thought the Matsui play was nastier than Rowand's nose-smash. It was just awful to watch.

Not to mention the Phillies are currently contending in the NL East, who knows how long it'll last but right now they are.

I just don't know how the Yankees are going to be able to get anyone of value with the total lack of valuable talent they have in the minors right now.

I read in the paper that Matsui apologized to the Yankees for breaking his wrist. I understand it's part of Japanese culture to take responsibility for your actions, whether or not it's your "fault". It was an accident, certainly not his fault. And he felt bad for "letting his team down".

He doesn't have to feel that way, of course, and I'm assuming the team has told him that, but it's refreshing to hear something like this. Would be nice if some other athletes showed this kind of humility.

Matsui is a consummate professional. He is one of my favorite players in the league.

I totally agree with the last 2 posts. He had no need to apologize, but doing so show's that he's got some class.
