DateQuestionAnswer
2012-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)So, it looks like Michael Morse might be down a while. My NL only team sure needs a bat now. Options are limited, where should I look - Brett Pill, Zavier Nady, Steve Lombardozzi, Matt Carpenter, or is help on the way?
(Nick Johnson from in surgery)
I'm not sure any of those guys are solutions to your problem - Pill and Nady are lefty-mashing role players at best, with considerable questions about their longer-term viability. Lombardozzi's a utilityman, Carpenter's a bench player. I'd look elsewhere for more than a stopgap. (Jay Jaffe)
2012-04-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)How is it that after jerking Brandon Belt around last season and announcing that this season he would get his chance the Giants have now discovered flaws in Belt's approach (after three whole games!) that have necessitated his removal to the bench in favour of Brett Pill? They told the kid the job is his...what has changed?
(michaelmcduffe from ottawa)
in retrospect it seems clear that the Giants questioned his approach even last year - they're just more vocal about talking about it publicly now as a means of justifying their decisions. It doesn't mean they're wrong, either, but with that offense, I think you have to take the chance and find out with some on-the-job training whether he needs to evolve his approach significantly. (Jay Jaffe)
