Is Belt the Left Handed bat they need?


I assume that the Giants are not going to pick up a bat.  Dunn is the only reported name worth pursuing and the cost will be too high.

Right now, I have no confidence that Pablo will turn things around.  Forget his BA.  Bad as it is, the real issue is his Slg PCT.  Dismal.  Around .270 for his last 65 games.  That's Johnnie Lemaster territory.  I'm not about to give up on a 24 year old that hit .330 over a season.  But THIS YEAR looks lost for Pablo.  This offseason will be key.  Either he decides to lose weight and work on his craft or he will be a one year wonder.

He has to sit if he doesn't turn things around quickly.  That opens up things for Uribe at third.  First base now would be Ishi against right handers.  But I don't anticipate that he will continue his success. 

That brings me finally to the question I led with.  Is Brandon Belt ready now?  I know its been a short time in the minors.  But he's ripping it up.  He has always been a contact guy and now he's a contact guy with power.  I haven't seen him.  I know some have.

 

If Pablo continues to struggle, Ishi falters and the Giants don't get Dunn - three real possibilities- then perhaps Belt gets the call.
