Ishikawa back in the Orange and Black?

 Travis did drive in SEVEN runs in the NLCS.

Chris Haft of mlb,com does a good analysis of whether Travis -- he of the walkoff winning HR in the NLCS this year year -- will be back....

Primarily a first baseman, Ishikawa played left field through much of the postseason, responding to an opportunity presented him by manager Bruce Bochy. The left-handed swinger also batted .333 (7-for-21) as a pinch-hitter.
"I think he fills a few more roles going forward from here and I think that's one of the reasons the Giants would have interest in bringing him back," Ishikawa's agent, Jim McDowell, said Monday.
McDowell also said that the Giants had not hinted what action they would take with Ishikawa.
"We know how that goes," McDowell said. "Stuff could happen today or tomorrow that could impact that and therefore we don't know. I think that he's a viable guy, even from a trade standpoint, where it might not make sense to non-tender a guy like that."
Giants assistant general manager Bobby Evans withheld comment on non-tender-related matters, indicating he would speak more after Tuesday's deadline.
Five arbitration-eligible Giants likely will be tendered contracts: outfielder Gregor Blanco, right-hander Yusmeiro Petit, first baseman Brandon Belt, shortstop Brandon Crawford and catcher Hector Sanchez.
