I'm on record here (last year) as saying last season would be Belt's break-out year. He did get off to a slowish start, and I was hoping for a Goldschmidt type season from him, but all in all I can't say I was disappointed. I fully expect him to improve this season.
Crawford had good numbers for most of last year then faded towards the end. Maybe the grind of the long season? But I fully expect him to improve as well.
As for Panda… he's been more or less erratic at times. But I do fully expect him to be extended and most likely overpaid by the end of the season.
