"I'm really excited and happy to be back here," said Torres, the outfielder who was traded with right-hander Ramon Ramirez to the Mets for outfielder Angel Pagan last Dec. 5.
"I always wish them the best. Everyone," he said. "I'm always thankful for everything they did for me and I really appreciate that."Torres, who entered Monday batting .231 with 10 stolen bases in 75 games, said that he frequently encounters Giants fans wherever he goes -- including downtown San Francisco on Monday.
"They tell me, 'We miss you, Andres; we want you back. Thank you for being the  World Series champs,'" he said.Despite leaving the Giants organization, Torres said that he keeps one of his two World Series rings with him at all times (one's a replica) and frequently wears it.
"Why not?" he said.The Giants remain a significant part of Torres' life. Despite the trade, the soon-to-be-released documentary about his struggles with ADHD is still titled "Gigante." A rough cut of the film was screened in New York on May 31. Torres believed that the final editing will be completed in time for a San Francisco premiere during the offseason.
