Giants happy to be back in home park

SAN FRANCISCO -- Whoever is responsible for the decor in the Giants home locker room at AT&T Park might want to get up to speed.

Above the players' lockers are paintings of three NL West pennants, three National League Pennants and one for the 2010 World Series.

What's missing?

The painted banners from 2012 haven't been added yet.

A day after landing in the Bay Area from a long, seven-week stretch in the desert for Spring Training, Giants manager Bruce Bochy was happy to be back in the dugout at AT&T Park on Thursday.

"It's great to get back," Bochy said. "It's always good to get back to Spring Training, but it's great to get that over with when you're there for as long as we were. There's great memories in this ballpark. I know the guys feel the same when they come out here."
