Here comes Godzilla. Hideki Matsui, Yankees fan favorite and current special advisor to Brian Cashman, is preparing to help the Bombers reel in prized two-way Japanese baseball star Shohei Otani. “If he's allowed to come here and the Yankees are interested, then I expect to be involved in that process as maybe trying to convince him or recruit him to the Yankees,” Matsui told MLB.com. The Yankees are one of the top contenders to land Otani, according to FanRag Sports, when he eventually gets posted later this year. MLB is currently negotiating and has until Monday to agree on a set of rules for a new international posting system with Nippon Professional Baseball.
