SF Giants Summer Camp 7/14 – Tweet Journal

Join Sam as he covers the SF Giants Summer Camp Training LIVE from Oracle Park. Each day’s post updates live in real-time and is meant to be something between a tweet and an article – the brevity and timeliness of a tweet combined with the analysis and organization of a blog post.

Live Scrimmage Notes

  • Today’s Questions:
    • Shaun Anderson starting for Team Black? Last season it looked like he could be the closer of the future.
    • Only a 4 inning game – will the Giants be ready for a full 9 innings this time next week?
    • Tony Watson again warming up on the mound before the game – can he be the lockdown set-up man for the Giants this season?
