Willie Randolph said last night he’ll run with a platoon at second, which means Kaz Matsui is still in the mix.
That’s really puzzling to me. I’m more inclined to play Jose Valentin. When he’s gotten the chance, he has been able to hit _ something Matsui hasn’t done _ and for all the talk of Matsui’s defense, he’s not that much better than Valentin.
I say eat the balance of his $8 million contract and use the roster spot for somebody that can help you at this level.
