Thank you for clicking on CSN Bay Area dot com with -- Giants insider -- -- -- I am Ahmed Fareed. We got a game we've had practices workouts up until today we finally got our first game Giants win 41. And we saw a lot of things that are very characteristic of the Giants in the regular season here in spring training aren't. But off the -- the first run of the cactus league season doesn't account for anything but. Always a good -- he seemed to put on and I get a crisp single. Marcus Carter takes a pitch allows the -- steal second base. And it's good road does this you're always seem to do down the stretch he had he found a way to get the guy in the third base that gave himself up -- a ground ball. To the right side had that -- plan executed it. And then Pablo Sandoval got the runner home from third base with less than two outs. It's -- single and -- on scores and of course public DelHomme running after that. But Doug did site for the Giants not just that these guys are right McEnroe rhythms. From day one but it's easy to forget that forgot his hero or both free agents the Giants need -- big priority to re -- both guys they could be wearing other uniforms this spring. And it's nice to be trying to figure out away. To recap the top of that lineup you know what what would they do 12 with they go with Gregor Blanco may be and tried Brandon belt as the two hitter or. Within sight of a free agent like Shane Victorino type a dire Michael Bourn. A lot of these guys certainly the World Baseball Classic game. If you got new guys me that's a problem because you want this -- to get some chemistry some familiarity. You know little lose guys for half the spring training but. You know scooter row and put on and how those guys all know each -- so the fact that they're going to be spending a few weeks apart. Not really a big deal is just so nice the Giants -- -- not to have to think about what they're gonna do at the top land there you know. Yeah we will lament the fact that there isn't a whole lot of news or new players by the year right as a good thing for the Giants because there to know what they got Lester from those guys up and but the open to get this year as well so it also of the guys in the bullpen we saw. A rival the -- starter first couple innings said he felt pretty good out there but really everyone after him looked pretty sharp. Get a one run at the Giants gave up -- Chad again in his second inning of work and published in a ball dropped a double play grounder with runners at the first and third. With one out so really judge should have been out of that inning but public could only get the one out at first base so run scores on a jagged -- watched. Never good to have a runs or your first outing we try to make -- team as a non roster -- -- the Giants will. Graded out accordingly. It just looked pretty good George -- us had a strike out got a double play grounder. Showing he can pitch to lefties which is a big deal. And Sergio Romo we heard those. Those trumpets blaring of helmet shown which everybody loves in the ballpark they played here at Scottsdale Stadium to. And a little will and Holler when he came in tune in to face hitters for the first time since the World Series. EA guys there RD in regular season form -- Buster Posey only played a couple of innings nothing to worry about there they're gonna. Take it easy with him bellies early on in spring training but there's another guy behind the plate that they are gonna keep -- there. Dexter Sanchez has a look of a sore shoulder. -- she said that they they're gonna back him off they wouldn't maybe do that the regular season. He's not gonna sort of bases again until Monday he checks out of their fine and then he'll be cleared to. Playing games but for now we're gonna take it easier on -- I try to hold yourself together this is my -- last report with the here and here's a sunny Arizona go back to the Bay Area I am.
