Fontenot thankful for time with Giants
PHILADELPHIA -- Mike Fontenot's Giants career lasted only 113 games, but that stint left an enduring impression on him.

"I enjoyed it," said Fontenot, who signed with the Philadelphia Phillies in mid-April after the Giants released him March 30. "It was a fun city, a fun place to play and a great atmosphere. We won a World Series, which is something I'll always look back on."

Fontenot figured that joining the Giants on their historic ride sweetened his resume. The utility infielder has performed for postseason qualifiers in three of the previous five years.

"When I step on the field, hopefully I'm better prepared because I've been through those things," said Fontenot, a member of the Cubs when they reached the Division Series in 2007-08.

Fontenot, who hit .241 as a Giant, owned a .308 batting average through 41 games with the Phillies entering his start Saturday at third base.
