Hideki Matsui has already said a number of times that he currently does not have plans of playing baseball in Japan.  But if he decides to return, the Yokohama Bay Stars could get involved -- both DeNA president Jun Ikeda and GM Shigeru Takada feel he can help the team (possibly in left as the team's clean-up hitter) and Kiyoshi Nakahata has ties with Matsui back from when they were both on the Yomiuri Giants (Nakahata as a coach).
