in 1993 matsui joined da yomiuri giants in japan. dis teem iz da ekwivalent to da new york yankeez he wuz nicknamed godzilla becuz uv hiz powerful bat. he led da giantz to three titlez an wuz named mos valyooable player in 2002.
matsui joined da yankeez in 2003. he hitta grand slam (an dat’zza good thing) in hiz first game at yankee stadiyum. he hit 3 homerz in da 2009 werld seriez an wuz named mos valyooable player. da yankeez were a little stoopid, tho, an matsui wuz traded.
he played wid da angelz, da athleticz, an da rayz fer da las 3 seezonz.
he annownced hiz retirement in noo york sayin “i thot it wuz time to stop.”
he mite go back to japan … or he mite stay in noo york. i hope he stayz in noo york becuz he sumtimez eetz in da local japanese restaurant called “yamaguchi” in mi home town an maybe i can get to see da grate godzilla hizself sumday. u can reed mor abowt hideki matsui heer!
