08:23 AM ET 02.14 | If the Giants are to repeat in 2011, their success, as was the case in the 2010 postseason, will rely on their own version of an arms race. This team's principal asset is its young rotation, a high-performance engine that the Giants had to red-line through 15 postseason games to win the World Series. As these pitchers take the field for their first formal workout of 2011 on Tuesday, Dave Righetti, bullpen coach Mark Gardner and manager Bruce Bochy plan to watch them intently, more than any spring before, for signs of residual arm stress or fatigue from a longer season. "I'm not putting my head in the sand," Righetti said. "You're going to watch each guy and see if it had any effect."

Congrats on the Giants winning the WS last year. It was a pleasure seeing someone else besides the Phillies rep the NL.

Timmy doesn't get arm fatigue. He's doing curls with fat j's all winter long.

They made a nice run last year but the offense is questionable and you never want to overwork those young arms, especially Lincecum and Cain. San Fran will probably win the NL West but it'll be a tough road to get back to the WS.
