Sign of Hope... Kaz Matsui inks one year deal

Kaz Matsui has agreed to terms! This signing is at least important as our center field quest as far as the Rockies chances for next season, given who we are targetting out there. So believe me, this is good news for the Rockies. Is there a risk he'll play like he did with the Mets? Sure, but there's also at least a chance that he'll come back comfortable and confident and regain his Japan form like he did late last season. Remember most scouts were flat out surprised by how badly he underperformed when he came over here.

Next on our agenda will probably be the bullpen or back-up catcher, unless we make an unexpected trade sometime soon. I don't expect the cf concern to be resolved until some other players like Juan Pierre and Gary Matthews Jr get signed by other clubs to establish a market.
