What do you do about these two?

7042.jpgHideki Matsui has one hit in his last 14 at-bats and is 15 for 85 since Sept. 1. He has four home runs in 193 at-bats since Aug. 1.

7595.jpgMelky Cabrera is 2 for his last 28 over the last seven games. He has one extra-base hit since Sept. 12.

I think Matsui is more injured than he is letting on and needs to be benched. I’d use Jason Giambi as the DH and stick with Doug Mientkiewicz at first. Giambi’s glove should be hidden so he can’t play first.

As for Melky, he’s a kid and kids are inconsistent. He’s liable to go 3 for 4 and throw two guys out at the plate. At least he’s had a few RBI lately.
