Well, Strickland gave up another homer in the ninth. Wait, that was the Mariners game, still felt the same. This will be a long season for the Giants. BTW, didn't Belt hit something like .400 during spring training.

As you know, Brandon Belt complained to the press about balls and strikes. That's not something MLB wants players doing, because it undermines the sanctity of umpiredom. It's rare when we're privy to the particulars of a private conversation between the league and one of the players, but as always, when it involves Brandon Belt, convention flies right out the window. Truly remarkable audio here.
