Munenori Kawasaki (33) chatted with Isao Harimoto earlier this month. Sponichi posted their conversation on November 8. Kawasaki had this to say about his future: "I do have plans to come back to Japan. That was the plan from my first year. I have no interest in the Majors. I went because I wanted to play with Ichiro. And it was crazy. I thought I'd be cut in a month. But, it's been three years. I have more friends, and it was good having conversations I never would have had if I stayed in Japan. I have no intention of finishing my career in the United States. I still don't know what I'm going to do. All I know is that I want to play baseball." Source: Sponichi 11/21/2014
