Pick up Brandon Belt?? WHIR

Postby holiemacaroni » Thu Jun 14, 2012 10:51 pm

Has Brandon Belt turned his game around? Do you think he will keep up with the HR? What kind of numbers do you think he can put up the rest of the year?

He was a top sleeper pick at the begging of the year and many people had him as the next big thing? Think he has finally figured it out or have these past 3HR in the past 3 day just him getting lucky?

I certainly hope so...I've like Belt since last year but Bochy kept jerking him around and not giving him an every day position where he could get comfortable. It's very difficult to perform at the plate when your position and playing time are always up in the air. I thought the Giants would have that figured out this season, but they didn't. He's definitely come on strong lately, but I'd sit back and wait on him for a while...let him continue to prove he's finally ready to be a consistent player. I personally thought he'd produce a line of .285, 18-24 HRs, and around 60-70 RBIs, with maybe 10 SBs or so...I'll definitely be watching him closely, ALA Buster Posey, but he's gonna have to do more than just break out for 3 days to get on my team. Please help me with mine below, thanks!

I was just considering the same thing in my league, but I think I'm going to wait a week or two and hope he still isn't nabbed by then. If you have someone on your team you don't mind losing Belt might not be bad to pick up just in case he really has turned things around, but don't drop anyone you'll regret later if Belt goes back to how he'd been up to this point.

I am struggling with the same decision as well, especially in leagues with moves limits. Been burned before!
