Hideki Matsui Should Retire?

Discussion in the Nichi-Bei forum
Hideki Matsui Should Retire?
Do you guys think Hideki Matsui should retire, give it up? I think he should. He's been nothing but injury prone and his bat isn't what used to be. I think it's time.

I would like to know everyone else's opinion.

He's making a reported $13 million for this season, so he most certainly wouldn't call it quits yet.

His knee is a huge problem, and he will be 35 in June, but I see him staying in the U.S. in the American League to take advantage of the DH for at least another year or two.

I think he's been happy the last several years in the U.S. I can't see him returning to Japan to play for anyone, including the Giants.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
