Not to be outdone by other ball clubs (namely the Hanshin Tigers), owner Takuo Takihana said he'd love to see Hideki Matsui make a come back with the Giants, should he decide to return to Japan.

"If he ends up coming back to Japan in the near future, I'd love for him to come back to the Giants," said Takihana. "But right now, he's in the middle of a contract with a team in the Majors.
