A major announcement arrives after today’s Giants vs. A’s game: what happens with Brandon Belt?
From multiple sources and writers, such as the San Jose Mercury News and John Shea, it looks like Belt being the Opening Day first baseman is very much a likely possibility.
Cue the freak outs.
Belt’s played to the best of his abilities throughout Spring Training — and all that effort has obviously made an impact on the decision making.
But keep in mind that this is the Giants, the same team that wound up re-signing Bengie Molina last offseason. Anything can happen. While I’m personally hoping that Belt starts in the bigs, there’s an equal chance he starts out in Fresno.
Either way the announcement goes, however, will end up in freak outs.
