How long has Matsui been playing for the Yankees?
And he doesn't know ANY English? I'm not saying he should be fluent but you would think he would pick up a word or two?

1. I think he got into MLB in 2002
I believe a year after Ichiro did. As for picking up english, I don't think it really matters one way, or the other. Ichiro doesn't speak very much of it and he has been a M since 2001.

5. I thought that must be the case.
He doesn't want to flub an interview. You can tell he understands English while a question is being asked, even though an interpreter repeats it.

Picks his words as well has he picks his pitches!
