Bochy, Giants stick with winning formula

14 February 2013 16:56

San Francisco Giants' manager Bruce Bochy plans to keep changes to a minimum as he prepares his team for a World Series defence.

The Giants won their seventh World Series title last year and begin the new Major League Baseball (MLB) season on April 1 with a short trip south to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Bochy believes he does not have to change too much to keep San Francisco focused as they head into the new MLB campaign, although he has vowed to maintain his team's versatility.

"Our plans will be pretty much the same, if it isn't broke then don't fix it," Bochy said.

"We'll still concentrate on what we need to do here and make the necessary adjustments to our club, if needed.

"We'll move guys around which you know I like to do and keep that versatility."

Meanwhile, Kensuke Tanaka, the Giants' new Japanese second baseman or shortstop, has expressed his excitement to be on the verge of an MLB debut.

Tanaka has joined San Francisco after 10 seasons with Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters in his home country and cannot wait to show what he can do in the USA.

"I wanted to play in the Major League last year and now I have the chance to show my skills and talent," Tanaka said.
