You could bet on it
Bobby Abreu took an $11 million pay cut this year to finally land with the Angels, so Hideki Matsui probably shouldn’t be checking his mailbox for a check this spring.
Remember that bet from last March, when Matsui flew off to New York for a surprise wedding and pulled a fast one on Derek Jeter and Abreu? Matsui wagered at the beginning of Spring Training concerning who would get married first, never letting on that his date was set for March 26.
“Bobby left without paying. Jeter has one more month,” Matsui said.
Abreu had a girlfriend and had six months to tie the knot, while Jeter – who claimed to be single – had a year. Abreu already lost his part of the bet and unless something shocking happens with the Yankees’ favorite super-bachelor, Jeter will be paying Matsui by the end of camp.
