Dealing with Brandon Belt...

Postby skinnyo » Mon Apr 09, 2012 2:19 pm

Should I drop Brandon Belt for either Edwin Encarnacion or Chone Figgins?

Way too early to give up on him. I'd wait it would a few more weeks.

I'd monitor his PT more than anything. He's sitting today, FWIW. If the Giants jerk him around again this year he won't be worth the hassle. If he gets consistent AB I would hold onto him for at least another couple weeks.

Nope. Belt has a lot of upside where neither of those guys are likely to be worth much this season.
