BREAKING NEWS: Matsui Signs With Cubs


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.

Where did this originally come from then, if not ESPN Denver??

This is uncomfirmed. This is a good signing only if this helps lure in Fukudome. If Fukudome doesn't come Jim Hendry should be givin' the boot. I don't know if I want this to be true or not. Until I hear it confirmed positively, I'll assume he's not a CUb.

You've got half of Cubs Blog Nation waiting on some sort of confirmation.

Making up "breaking news" is not a good way to get people interested in your new blog.

Hey BleedCubbieBlue33... fwiw, it is kind of hard to read your blog because of the red font.

The banner says:

"Cubs rumors and news as soon as it happens."

Enough said. If "Cubs Hot Stove" says it happened, it happened!

What's the word Big Jake?

Did you hear this or just make it up?

It's a good signing if he's a bench player? A bench player making over $4 million a year is a good signing? No, this is a bad signing no matter which way you slice it. Thankfuly, there doesn't appear to be any truth to this

When is the deadline for offering arbitration? It could be that he has signed in principle waiting to see if the Rockies offer arbitration.
