Playing A Little Pepper

Hideki Matsui is in the lineup tonight (see below). Will this be a regular occurrence?

Not everyday, but we will probably see it a few more times until Flash Jennings comes off the DL. If the Rays get a lead, look for somebody like Rich Thompson to replace Matsui late in the game. He might also get a start or two at DH in the next couple of weeks against lefties. Otherwise, Matsui is probably going to be a pinch-hitter until he shows he deserves more…SEMI-REGULAR FOR NOW

Lineup…

  1. Carlos Pena, 1B
  2. BJ Upton, CF
  3. Matt Joyce, RF
  4. Ben Zobrist, 2B
  5. Luke Scott, DH
  6. Hideki Matsui, LF
  7. Jose Lobaton, C
  8. Drew Sutton, 3B
  9. Elliot Johnson, SS
  10. James Shields, SP

    Maybe we will attract more Japanese media and advertising again like when Aki was here.

    He can't be any worse an option on the bench than Vogt of the 0-17 with zero BB.

    He might be a little bit of an adventure in left, but I hope not.

    Welcome Godzilla.

    My favorite memory of him is when he went into the stands and his momentum was stopped entirely by his face mashing into a seat. Damn that looked painful.
