08:10 AM ET 09.29 | One sign points to another in Oakland. [The A's] Oakland will host the Mariners at the Tokyo Dome on March 28 and 29. This makes it an even better bet that the team will bring back DH Hideki Matsui. That was already looking like a strong possibility. ... "He's the one free agent we'd seriously consider for a number of reasons," one team higher-up told me today. I just spoke to team president Mike Crowley, who wouldn't come out and say the A's are re-signing Matsui -- the team wouldn't do that until it's all official -- but he did say, stating the obvious and somewhat tongue-in-cheek, "Certainly Major League Baseball would be very happy if we brought him back. Ichiro and Matsui in Japan would be a good thing for everyone."

Really?!?! I thought Matsui already had one foot out the door toward retirement. but if he feels he can play, more power to him.
