It's good to see opposing manager bring in a lefty specialist to face Matsui and it turns out to be a wrong move.

:clap:

That seems to be the case more times then bringing in righties.

 

Point is, there really isn't any true way to pitch Matsui in key situations out of the pen. Just hope he's off and your reliever is on.
