You're still going to see Kaz in the lineup

Don't get your hopes up, what with all the DFA-ing going around baseball, Kaz Matsui will still be in the lineup.

Definitely against righthanded pitching he's going to get some playing time. I've talked to him many a time (and told him) ‘you're not out of our plans for sure.' We try to put guys in positions to have success. And we're going to try to put him in matchups and in games in which he has that opportunity. The attitude is there, the desire to work and to get better is there, so that's where we're at. That's part of moving in the right direction.”
You'll also read an account in Fallas' linked Notes column about how many Astros were not driven to AT&T Park from the hotel because taxi drivers would not find a way around the Bay-to-Breakers foot race. Cory Sullivan walked the whole way. Kaz Matsui never found the stadium.
