It's not official yet, but based on reports it is expected that former Yankee World Series MVP Hideki Matsui will announce his retirement from Major League Baseball in the upcoming days.

A couple of former Yankees got jobs yesterday as Hideki Matsui is expected to sign with the Rays and Bill Hall signed with the Orioles, according to Jack Curry and Ken Rosenthal.

The Yankees just signed Bill Hall and supposedly only have $2 million to spend, but that they don't still have big plans for the rest of this offseason. Joel Sherman of the NY Post has reported that the Yankees are "quietly, but diligently" trying to trade A.J. Burnett with the idea that they could use the ...
The Yankees want to complete a deal for a left handed hitting DH, but insist that they only have up to $2 million to spend and that prices are still too high, according to Joel Sherman of the NY Post. Sherman reports that the Yankees signing of Hiroki Kuroda has already put them over budget so ...
