A couple of items on the Bombers as they take on the Rays tonight..
- Before last night's game, Hideki Matsui admitted to reporters that the Rays were the only team to make him an offer during the offseason, writes Dan Martin of the New York Post. Matsui added that he wasn't surprised when he didn't hear from the Yankees as they searched for a designated hitter this winter.
- Even though the signing of Andy Pettitte seemed like an unnecessary move at the time, Ken Davidoff of the New York Post writes that it now like the best seven-figure investment in Yankees history. The soon-to-be 40-year-old has a 2.78 ERA with 8.1 K/9 and 1.8 BB/9 in five starts.
