MLB betting indicates that the Yankees are currently taking their World Series trophy to Asia on a six-day tour. Baseball betting had team officials including team president Randy Levine and general manager Brian Cashman on the trip.
Baseball betting has the Yankees as the favorite at 2.5 to 1 to win the 2010 World Series. The Yankees are giving that World Series Trophy quite a tour. On Monday it was in Tokyo along with the Yomiuri Giants' Japan Series trophy. MLB betting has the trophy in Beijing on Wednesday. It will be the first time ever that the World Series Trophy will be in China. MLB betting has the tour ending in Hong Kong on Friday.
The Yankees have been smart enough to realize that talent exists in Asia. The Yankees signed Japanese star Hideki Matsui in 2003 and he was a major force for the Yankees in baseball betting. He was the MVP of the World Series as MLB betting indicated and one of New York’s best players. Baseball betting info had the Los Angeles Angels signing Matsui in the off-season to a $6 million dollar one-year deal. Cashman has said that replacing Matsui will be tough because the Matsui deal was a great one for New York. "I've had some successful signings in Japan, I've had some unsuccessful signings in Japan. Hideki Matsui will be one of the best deals I ever made," Cashman said, "We will have future players from Japan on our roster. They will do everything in their power to try to help us win, but I doubt we'll find another Hideki Matsui."
Baseball betting stats indicated that Matsui hit .274 with 28 home runs and 90 RBIs as the Yankees' DH last season. "We did not sign Hideki Matsui because he was Japanese, we signed him because he was a true champion and one of the world's more gifted baseball players," Cashman said.
Cashman is smart enough to realize that talent exists around the world. This tour is a great way for New York to get the Yankees in the news in Asia. Finding talent is now a world-wide endeavor and the Yankees are not the baseball betting favorites for no reason. They have money and a GM in Cashman who looks beyond the obvious for talent.
