BRANDON BELT RUMORS & GOSSIP

Top 10 MLB first basemen for 2017

There are few positions that are both more fun – while simultaneously difficult – to breakdown than first base. It is annually the home many of the most impressive hitters in the game, and limiting that assessment to simply a top 10 ensures there will be some impact players left on the outside. But is also guarantees an all-out fight to make it to the top. This year’s list...

Brandon Belt wants to punch friend D.J. LeMahieu in the face

Brandon Belt isn’t thrilled with his buddy D.J. LeMahieu. The San Francisco Giants belted the Colorado Rockies 12-3 on Tuesday night, and the Giants’ long-time first baseman led the charge with three hits. Belt would have added another hit without an impressive stab and dive from his friend, Rockies second baseman LeMahieu. LeMahieu showed off his athleticism and length on...

San Francisco Giants inching closer to a record they really don’t want

Entering the All-Star break, the San Francisco Giants had the best record in baseball at 57-33. Since the All-Star break, they rest comfortably in the Major League Baseball cellar with a record of 12-25. Despite Matt Moore’s near no-hitter in a 4-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday night, the Giants’ current slump has them inching towards an all-time record. And...

Brandon Belt rips himself on Twitter after striking out to catcher (vid)

The Pittsburgh Pirates found themselves on the receiving end of a savage blowout, losing to the San Francisco Giants by a score of 15-4. But the savagery that occurred afterward in the social media musings of Giants first baseman Brandon Belt at his own expense may have been much more severe. The Pirates were left throwing out backup catcher Erik Katz to pitch the ninth inning...

Brandon Belt’s Annual, Awesome Adjustment

We’re here every year, it feels like. May rolls around, we notice that Brandon Belt has been doing new things in the early part of the season, and then we forget about it until the next season rolls around when we start all over again. Maybe it’s because he’s been the victim of a few impact injuries that have caused him to miss time in the second half of the past two seasons...

Belt, Giants Avert Risk with Six-Year Extension

Contract extensions during arbitration seasons aren’t terribly common, especially when a player is just two seasons from free agency. Since Elvis Andrus signed his eight year, $120 million extension in 2013, there have been just three contract extensions handed to players who’ve recorded similar service time. One winter ago, Giancarlo Stanton signed his 13 year, $325 million...

Brandon Belt’s extension shows Giants’ commitment to their own

For a long time, the knock on the San Francisco Giants’ farm system was that it was awful at developing position players. While the organization could churn out quality arm after quality arm, they couldn’t do the same for bats as hard as they tried. All of that changed when Buster Posey arrived in 2010 which, coincidentally, is the time the Giants started winning World Championships...

Pros and cons: should the Giants give Brandon Belt an extension?

Brandon Belt has been a lightning rod for Giants fans ever since he first arrived in the big leagues a few years ago. After destroying every level of the minor leagues in one season, fans were expecting him to be the second coming of Will Clark from the start. But he struggled to adjust to the majors, and it took him a few years to find his footing before becoming a key contributor...

San Francisco Giants: If Anyone Gets Traded, It's Brandon Belt

Looking over his shoulder, how apt. With the clock ticking until the MLB trade deadline, the San Francisco Giants should be willing to give up only one major piece of the team, and that’s Brandon Belt. I am one of many who have pulled for the Baby Giraffe since day one. I felt he was shoddily treated his early years in the big leagues, getting shuttled from the big club...
