Stop the Presses!

by Patrick Newman (Dec 6, 2008)

Hideki Matsui has selected a locker in the new Yankee Stadium!

This obviously isn't newsworthy, but it's interesting for three reasons:

  1. The Japanese media thinks it IS newsworthy. It gives you an idea of how obsessive they are.
  2. Matsui is resigned to the possiblity that he could be traded. His quote: "please look forward to next season. You know, if I'm here."
  3. Matsui is considerate: he chose a locker away from Derek Jeter, as not disturb the captain with his large media contigent.
