BRANDON BELT RUMORS & GOSSIP

Giants stumble in series finale, end miserable road trip

The Giants are coming back to San Francisco, and they can't do it soon enough. On Sunday, Carlos Beltran hit a flat-footed pop-up to right field. It sounded like a flat-footed pop-up off the bat. It looked like he hit it toward the handle. Instead, it left the ballpark instead. Was your first reaction to grumble and suggest that baseball isn’t fair, or that the new Yankees stadium...

The Pittsburgh Pirates found themselves on the receiving end of a savage blowout, losing to the San Francisco Giants by a score of 15-4. But the savagery that occurred afterward in the social media musings of Giants first baseman Brandon Belt at his own expense may have been much more severe.

Brandon Belt’s Annual, Awesome Adjustment

We’re here every year, it feels like. May rolls around, we notice that Brandon Belt has been doing new things in the early part of the season, and then we forget about it until the next season rolls around when we start all over again. Maybe it’s because he’s been the victim of a few impact injuries that have caused him to miss time in the second half of the past two seasons...

Belt, Giants Avert Risk with Six-Year Extension

Contract extensions during arbitration seasons aren’t terribly common, especially when a player is just two seasons from free agency. Since Elvis Andrus signed his eight year, $120 million extension in 2013, there have been just three contract extensions handed to players who’ve recorded similar service time. One winter ago, Giancarlo Stanton signed his 13 year, $325 million...

Brandon Belt’s extension shows Giants’ commitment to their own

For a long time, the knock on the San Francisco Giants’ farm system was that it was awful at developing position players. While the organization could churn out quality arm after quality arm, they couldn’t do the same for bats as hard as they tried. All of that changed when Buster Posey arrived in 2010 which, coincidentally, is the time the Giants started winning World Championships...
