Bowker Gets Nod In Right Field

By Bryan Rose

Just a quick note for today, but, the Giants announced this morning that John Bowker has won the Right Field job, a job that was more or less handed to (and dropped…lol) by former U.S. Olympian Nate Schierholtz.

Nate is by far a superior defender, but, the Giants feeling the need for a bat, went with Bowker who raked this spring, coming in second with 22 RBI’s in the Cactus League.

The Giants will take on the Mariners today (it’s the only Spring game left) and will leave after the game to open the season tomorrow afternoon in Houston.
