SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Andres Torres checked out the banner at the main entrance to Scottsdale Stadium blaring ``2012 WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS'' and knew he was back in the right place.

The outgoing outfielder bounced through the clubhouse Tuesday morning, sporting a beanie for the cool desert weather, after batting practice and some running - saying hello to all the familiar faces he missed spending one season away with the New York Mets following three in San Francisco.

Now, Torres will play alongside the guy the Giants traded him for last offseason: center fielder Angel Pagan.

San Francisco won another World Series last year while Torres was away, though he attended some playoff games at AT&T Park to cheer his former and now current club.

There's still a championship feeling everywhere in the ballpark.
