Astros Sign Kaz Matsui

Well, color me excited: the Astros have signed Rockies second baseman Kaz Matsui to a 3 year, $15mm deal.

Though the national media seems to be crapping on the move, I personally love it — I’ve always liked Kaz Matsui, and I think he’s a gigantic upgrade over Chris Burke at second base for the club. It also gives us the fastest 1-2 spots in the league, with Michael Bourn and Matsui batting ahead of Pence, Lee and Berkman.

Here’s what the starting day lineup will look like as of today.

CF — Michael Bourn
2B — Kaz Matsui
RF — Hunter Pence
LF — Carlos Lee
1B — Lance Berkman
3B — Ty Wigginton
C   — J.R. Towles
SS — Adam Everett
P   — Roy Oswalt
