    that makes sense. sabean doesn’t want to bring up Belt until he’s sure there are no over-the-hill veterans out there that can do the job for 20x the money on a 3 year deal.

      I think he would rather wait and see if Belt will cool down to Tejada levels before calling him up again. Who really wants a guy hitting .519 at AAA.

    Well, I think a lot of us Twins fans wish Red Dog was a coach for us in some way. I have since he left. I love that guy and he said his time with the Twins was his favorite time in MLB.

    Who is Felix Hernandez? For the life of me, I can’t recall his name.

        I have a coupon to Best Buy for a sarcasm detector if you’d like to use it. That, or mines broken. I can’t tell yet.

          i just wanted to make sure you knew the pitchers name who was pitching when you left field rayburn helped olivo get a hr to win the game for felix.

  4. I would have never sent Belt back down to begin with. His defense was a plus and he can get on base for the Giants. I understand Belt was sent down because Ross came off the DL but Ross has done nothing just like I predicted. To many giants fans look at him as a game changing hitter. Theres a reason why the marlins got rid of him for nothing last season, he is a decent player not an impact bat the Giants once again need. If they promote Belt again he will have even more pressure on him since the giants offense is horrible. Giants would be better off trading for a bat and bring Belt up later in the year. What are they going to do if they promote Belt and he struggles? Demote him again?

      Belt was sent down as much to acclimate to the OF and let Huff go back to 1B than anything about his start. Huff is a disaster anywhere but 1B, and Ross gives the team a couple elements Belt couldn’t offer at the time, defensive flexibility since he can play all 3 OF positions easily, and a track record of being a consistent 15+ home run hitter at a park bigger than AT&T

      They had too many players. Somebody had to go down.

  5. Is it really surprising that the Phillies have more L.A. players now than 20 years ago? Scouting and player development is so much better nowadays.

    So let me get this straight….the Mariners aren’t trading Felix Hernandez? I am not convinced,lets make more dumb trade scenarios…..
