The Giants intend to put third baseman Pablo Sandoval through another round of extra conditioning this spring, and Sandoval won't fight it. But Saturday, he insisted he is in baseball shape.

"Who cares what other people say?" Sandoval said. "I'm here to do my job. I'll keep doing my job."

It's hard to argue with that after Sandoval, at a similar weight, was named MVP of the World Series. He followed that up with a strong offseason, winning MVP honors in the Venezuelan League's championship series.

"If he's not in baseball shape, who is?" second baseman Marco Scutaro said. "He just finished playing like a week ago. He's good. He's fine."

The Giants always believe Sandoval can be better, and manager Bruce Bochy said Sandoval will again do extra conditioning early in the morning before team workouts and would do the same in the afternoons.

"I don't know if that question will ever go away, to be honest," Bochy said. "It seems like some guys, it's a battle for them."
