EVEN THE BRITISH DYNASTY EVENTUALLY PRODUCED CHARLES:

Matsui placed on 15-day disabled list (Bryan Hoch, 4/08/07, MLB.com)

The Yankees placed Hideki Matsui on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday, one day after the outfielder strained his left hamstring while running out a ground ball.

The assignment is the second in less than a year for Matsui, who missed four months last season with a broken left wrist. He strained the hamstring in the second inning of Saturday's game against the Baltimore Orioles.


Aged stars, bad defense and only two major league pitchers (Hughes & Rivera) is not a recipe for success.

How's that fearsome Sawx lineup doing so far?

They're threatening to maybe score 4 runs some game, if the wind's blowing out at 50 mph.

(Moose and Wang are better than anyone the Sawx have had since Pedro left -- but you know that.)

Yes, the Sox have a weak offense, but the pitching is so dominant they can still win. They need to bench Varitek -- his pitch calling with Pinero was a good example of how he kills them defensively too -- and get a 1b, so Youkilis can replace Lowell. The Snyder, Pinero, Hansack, Delcarmen, Hansen log jam makes trades easy.

The Yankees are going to have to bring Hughes up by the end of the month, offer Clemens thirty million and trade some of their youngsters for both a third starter and a set up guy. And that only helps them to the extent they can keep the geriatrics on the field. Not to mention that it returns them to sacrificing their future for their now.
