Throws Like A Non-Offensive Stereotype

Seriously, Brandon Belt better have earned a gold watch, a medal and a car for how much Belt has saved Panda’s throws. Sandoval’s throwing ability was always a strength.  He had good arm strength, but was usually very accurate.  But this year, he’s airmailed a few throws, including one that was the major piece of costing the team a win, and has been chucking several in the...

Giants could be seriously good, but also mortal

I waited a week to jump in here and write something intentionally, as to not overreact about such a small sample size. Seeing as though week one ended on a pretty lousy note in LA, I feel as though we've all been doused with a little bit of reality after a pretty sizzling start.We're not going to win 110 games. Belt isn't going to break Bonds's HR record, and Pagan...

Brandon Belt's power surge among three MLB hot starts to note

We’re not even a full week into the North American schedule but already some names are starting to emerge as primed to break out in 2014. Are we able to tell anything from the first series of the season, or a team’s first run through the rotation? No. But there are enough reasons to believe in these three and their strong start plays a role in that. Lets take a look at three...

San Francisco Giants: Brandon Belt extension talk

Late Tuesday night, the San Francisco Giants and first baseman Brandon Belt avoided arbitration by agreeing on a one-year, $2.9 million deal. While the deal solidified what should be a predictable opening day lineup for the Giants, it still does not address how the organization sees Belt in their future plans.

Brandon Belt Will Have A Breakout Season, And This Is Why…

Credit: Steven Robles – SF Giants Rumors In a very forgettable season for the San Francisco Giants, there were few bright spots in 2013. One of those bright spots was Brandon Belt. Belt was one of the top three hitters for the Giants and was very productive all around, but I believe he didn’t reach his full potential. Belt was a 4 win player while hitting .289/.360/.481 and...
