Well, say, hello there, Joaquin Arias playing first base. Before you start on the #FREEBELT yabbering, note that Brandon Belt mistakenly tried the radiator-broiled-shrimp fettuccine at Olive Garden two nights ago, so he's sick.

But if the backup plan at first is really Joaquin Arias ... well, see, this is why Brett Pill needs to get healthy. It's not like Nick Noonan is a bad utility option; he's just not close to what the Giants need right now.
