Stop the Presses!
Hideki Matsui has selected a locker in the new Yankee Stadium!
This obviously isn’t newsworthy, but it’s interesting for three reasons:
- The Japanese media thinks it IS newsworthy. It gives you an idea of how obsessive they are.
- 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.”
- Matsui is considerate: he chose a locker away from Derek Jeter, as not disturb the captain with his large media contigent.
