Brandon Belt gonna get Bochy'd for good?

Postby MashinSpuds » Wed Jul 25, 2012 8:42 am

Early in the season there were complaints about Bochy's treatment of Belt's playing time. Once Belt got the time (thanks to Huff's exit) he hit pretty well. Now he's in a superior slump, though I don't hear anyone demanding that Bochy get rid of the guy. Do people think the Giants are going to get someone before the trade deadline to put Belt out of his misery or do people think Belt will continue to get the time he needs?

I think Belt has been mishandled and needs a mulligan for this year. Give him the opening day job next season, then wait a few months to see how he does. If he's not going to play full time send him to the minors. He's still very young and could figure it out at any time. Giants need patience with him, but as far as the rest of this season goes, at this point whoever is hitting better deserves to play, no one should be playing favorites right now.
