Saving Private Torre

It's looking increasingly like Matsui and Sheffield will be back in September. How good they'll be is anyone's guess. I've been watching the daily updates on Matsui's rehab here in Japan and he's actually wearing his glove and playing catch now. He was throwing a football to keep his arm in shape, but now he's got a fielder's mitt and is playing soft toss.

Sheff claims that he's training with a boxer, and is about 5 pounds overweight, but otherwise strong and healing quickly. Dotel will be back shortly after the All Star Break, and Cano will return at that time as well. Reinforcements are on the way....
