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...

Chris Heston makes pickoff throw to empty base (Video)

San Francisco Giants pitcher Chris Heston fired a pickoff throw to first base, but found no one covering the bag during the third inning of Monday night's game against the New York Mets. With two outs and a runner on first, Brandon Belt had shifted back away from first base, so clearly a miscommunication on someone's part. You don't see that too often at the major league level.Heston...

San Francisco Has the Best Infield in Baseball

The San Francisco Giants began the season with what appeared to be an adequate, but perhaps underwhelming, infield. Buster Posey was the star at catcher and Brandon Belt seemed like a solid young first baseman. Brandon Crawford looked to be a decent glove-first shortstop while not much was expected from Joe Panik at second — and […]

San Francisco Giants’ Brandon Belt still an unknown

When the San Francisco Giants called up first baseman, Brandon Belt, in 2011, they were calling up one of the top prospects in baseball. It’s not fair to say that Belt has been a bust, he has had some ups-and-downs in his career however. The best way to describe Belt’s Major League career is that you can’t really describe it. Belt has yet to have two consecutive seasons where...

Belt hits 2 of Giants' 4 triples in victory over Padres

  Brandon Belt found another gear on the bases, and compared himself to a long-legged jungle animal. The speedy Giants hit four triples in a game for the first time in 55 years, including a pair by Belt in a 13-8 win over the San Diego Padres on Thursday. ''When I can sniff a triple, I'm going to turn it on,'' Belt said. ''I will do whatever I have to do, use my giraffe strides...

Giants Have An Excellent Opportunity to Re-Set Their Attack

There is one safe assumption we can make about every Major League Baseball season: virtually every team will have injuries to players on the active 25 man roster. No one wants to see any ballplayer on any team get hurt, but when the inevitable does happen it can be an opportunity for teams that rarely make big changes to their every day line-ups to do some serious re-structuring...
