Abreu, Matsui Providing Clutch Power

Posted by Mark McCray |

Playing seven games each to start out the 2008 season, Bobby Abreu and Hideki Matsui are together providing the offensive spark that the early lagging Yankee offense is in need of.

Abreu is batting .400 with a homerun, 10 hits, 6 runs, and 4 RBI's. In addition to this Bobby was just one double away from batting for a cycle Monday night. Nice work, Bobbbby!!!

Matsui is batting .375 with 2 homeruns, 9 hits, 2 runs, and 6 RBI's. Godzilla has proven to be one of the most clutch hitters at the plate this year with runners in scoring position (a category the rest of the team is seriously lacking in). It is crazy to think that just a few months ago I didn't think Hideki Matsui would even be suiting up for the Yankees in 2008. Now where would they be with out him?

If these two can keep it up and jumpstart this offense, the New York Yankees are well on their way to winning many more ballgames in 2008.
