    Bochy meets with Belt

    Bochy called Belt in this morning, wants to make sure he's not putting pressure on himself to increase numbers in just one game.

    So Anna, what do you think about the notion that Russell Wilson is better than Andrew Luck?

    Bochy said Belt will sit some v lefties. So Arias can play. #sfgiants.
    - Schulman

    With a string of left-handers coming up, Bochy said Belt could get a few extra days off this week.
    - Pav

    I hope this doesn't turn into a trend again.

    Belt pressing? 2012 is that you? Here we go again, though I am a huge Arias fan and can't complain about him getting more time, it does suck for Brandon. I still need ELGUAPO to drop some analysis about this situation though.

    I'll let a week go by before I make my judgement on this. Right now I'm seeing this as Bochy just giving Belt some time off to work on his hitting and relieve some pressure he may be putting on himself. If it lasts longer than a week then I'd be scared this is another platoon.

    Bochy meets with Belt

    I don't understand why ppl get mad at belt getting benched when he struggles haha especially after bochy has led us to 2 titles in 3 years, people still complain about how he manages the team. I want the best lineup out there on any given day. Belt hasn't done anything in the reg season. Had a great spring. I'm sure he's filled with potential, but you don't win with potential. You win with production

    Because Belt has tons of potential to be one of our best hitters. He's never had a full season under his belt (no pun intended) to be the everyday first baseman. He's always had to share it or had to deal with being demoted and promoted multiple times. Just in August/September he put these numbers:

    August: .349/.411/.477 .381 wOBA
    September: .310/.370/.512 .380 wOBA

    Not to mention he also did this in April/June:

    April: .278/.366/.389 .336 wOBA
    June: .296/.400/.563 .410 wOBA

    It's funny how the Belt basher's never remember this. He performed well the majority of the year in 2012. He finally was able to settle in after his platooning the first two months of the season. He had a good overall season last year. Why can't we see what we have in him for once?

    Why can't we actually give him time? Do any of you remember this man?

    1987: .188/.240/.339 .247 wOBA
    1988: .205/.251/.410 .295 wOBA
    1989: .202/.242/.455 .307 wOBA

    That was the first three seasons of this man's career. That man was Matt Williams.

    Matt Williams also became great though. At least for a Giant. With Belt who knows if he will even get more than a full season at this rate. It's a vicious cycle he's in that he can't seem to get out of. I really thought this would be his year, but platooning, we may never know.

    I didn't mean he'll be another Matt Williams. The point was more to be patient and not give up too early. Actually give the job to him and let him sink or swim.
