According to ESPN Radio in Denver, the Cubs have signed Kaz Matsui to a 3 year $14M deal. Matsui batted .288 with 4 homers and an OBP of .342. This is a good signing if he is only a bench player, but if he turns into an everyday player then it is a very bad signing. It is rumored that the Cubs wanted to sign Matsui in order to lure Kosuke Fukudome to Chicago. Hopefully this deal will lure him and we get Fukudome. More details later.
