  1. I don’t always agree with Grant, in fact, I disagree with him a lot, but I thought those were mostly pretty good answers to the questions. I thought Brandon Belt showed growth as the season went along. I think the broken wrist bone was a bigger setback than the Fresno shuttle, and that was hardly the Giants fault. I’d like to see him given the LF job out of spring training, but I don’t think he would be harmed be more seasoning in the minors.

    As much as he struggled at the plate, he still managed to hit 9 HR’s in just under 200 AB. My mean projection for him(using the ol’ eyeball formula) has a .240 BA with 25 HR’s. Short of signing Beltran and putting him in LF, the Giants would be hard pressed to top that production from any FA they signed, and Belt comes essentially free!
