Congratulasians to Hideki Matsui, who was named World Series MVP after the Yankees finished off the Phillies, 7-3, in six Wednesday. Matsui, whose nickname is “Godzilla” in Japan, had a monster night in the Series clincher–he homered, doubled, and singled while tying the record for most RBI (6) in a World Series game. The 35 year-old hit .615 in the Series overall.

Matsui is the first Japanese-born baseball player to receive the Most Valuable Player honor and described Wednesday night as “the best moment of my life right now.”  It also may have been his last moment as a Yankee, since he’s reached the end of a four year-contract with the team.

The Yankees played the Orioles last night and crushed them in the 9th, after falling behind early. A-SCROD had a walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the ninth, two outs. Yowzers.

It was also Japanese pitcher Kei Igawa’s debut in the bigs. He did not fare well, and was pulled after five:

“Igawa was the fourth flop in a row for the [Yankee] rotation. Two days after Daisuke Matsuzaka pitched seven dominating innings to win his debut for the
Boston Red Sox, Igawa started hearing boos after his 12th batter. He failed to string together a 1-2-3 inning and gave up seven runs, eight hits, three walks, a hit batter and two home runs, a performance that left him with a 12.60 ERA.


‘Please don’t compare me to Matsuzaka, he said through a translator, ‘but as a Japanese, I have to do my job.’

Booed after the 12th batter? Compared to Sir Dice-A-Lot? Man, I almost feel sorry for this guy, even though he’s a Yankee. Should I give him a nickname? What about:

No-Dice-Kei.

Too mean?
