Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle recently caught up with San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy. Schulman asked him questions about Pablo Sandoval, Tim Lincecum and Brian Wilson.
Bochy recently spoke to Sandoval over the phone and asked him about his weight. Bochy was satisfied with Sandoval’s answer (via Twitter).
The video I seen of Sandoval hitting a big home run in Venezuela looked like he didn’t shed many pounds this offseason (if any). I hope he’s not just assuming he’s going to put up big numbers. Half the battle for these guys is to have their bodies in the best possible shape.
Schulman also asked Bochy if he absolutely will tell Lincecum he will throw to Buster Posey this year. Bochy said he wants every pitcher to be ready to work with either catcher (Twitter Links).
Bochy might not want to tell Lincecum directly that he has to be ready to pitch to Posey, but he should address the team and say Posey is our guy behind the dish.
Bochy tells Schulman there’s not...
