Kazuo Matsui arrived at Narita Airport earlier today and held a press conference.  Matsui reiterated his stance about finding a team that needs him and said that he was 50/50 with regards to playing in either the US or Japan.  Matsui did say that he had a preference for an MLB contract, but realized that that was probably unlikely due to his performance this past season.  He also added that he needed to think about whether or not he consider a minor league contract.

Regarding which position he would like to play, Matsui said that he would be willing to play either short or second.
