The San Francisco Giants Open the 2014 Season!

Madison Bumgarner, L
Staff ace starts on Opening Day and turns 25 in August
Matt Cain, R
Staff workhorse expects to build on last year's finishing run
Tim Hudson, R
Can he still bring it at the level we're depending on so much? 
Tim Lincecum, R
He's 30, he's not what he was, but he's a lifelong overcomer
Ryan Vogelsong, R  
Is this the last chapter of his 'Hollywood story'?
Sergio Romo, R  
One of few who kept his stellar numbers up in 2013
Javier Lopez, L
SF's not-so-secret-weapon rewarded with new three-year deal
Santiago Casilla, R
Could inherit setup role--again-- if Bochy decides to fill it-- again  
Yusmeiro Petit, R
Likely will be called into rotation if one of the five falters
Jean Machi, R
Several newcomers from '13 didn't make it, but he did
David Huff, L
Career minor-leaguer is Mr Almost-Irrelevant, the twelfth man... 
Juan Gutierrez, R
... or is it this guy, DFA'd by the Angels despite 95-MPH heat? 
Jeremy Affeldt, L (DL)
We'll find out when this veteran returns from knee sprain 

Buster Posey, c
The Man Who Has Everything ought to double his HR count 
Hunter Pence, rf
Elevated his game in 2013-- and we need it to stay there 
Angel Pagan, cf
Whatever the reason, he brings success when he's in the lineup
Brandon Belt, 1b
Bochy, the best place for this stalwart may be the Number 2 spot
Pablo Sandoval, 3b
Slimmed-down free-agent-to-be has mucho motivation 
Michael Morse, of
Jints hope to get an 'Aubrey Huff' year out of this slugger
Brandon Crawford, ss
Let's hope that hand injury is cured and he regains 2012 form
Joaquin Arias, 2b
Career utilityman earns his first-ever starting stint
Ehire Adrianza, if
24-year-old may have inside track to second-base position
Brandon Hicks, if
Fine spring and Scutaro's injury earn him a spot on the roster  
Hector Sanchez, c
Great spring should open up more opportunities for him
Gregor Blanco, of
We're all hoping he remains what he is, a valuable fourth outfielder
Juan Perez, of
He's 27, he's got great defensive skills, speed, and throwing arm
Marco Scutaro, 2b (DL)
Is this goodbye and Godspeed to the 2012 postseason hero?
