Once Matsui cleared waivers yesterday, the Rockies came in and signed him to a minor-league deal.
GM Dan O'Dowd:
"We are looking to do something similar to last time. Put him in the minor leagues and see where he's at. There is no guarantee of a call-up. We all remember the magic of 2007. But I also know that this is 2010."
If Matsui hits .290 for Colorado, what do you think the chances are of Ed Wade forgetting about 2008-2010 and re-signing him to a $15m deal?
