Agreed. I still think we should bring back Damon Minor.

Even though this is only spring training, I'm hoping for a legitimate 5/6 hitter who can hit 15-20 HR's.

Is that too much to ask?

Like ive been saying since he was first called up, this kid has a chance to be special.

He has a rare ability to take walks at a young age. combine that with the pop in his bat, and his budding defensive ability...

I think that because of his awkward, likeable personality, and the fact that he shot through the minors so fast hes had to take most his pro AB's in the Majors, people have lost track of the fact that he has the makings of a star player. I think these next couple years hes going to get the attention of the rest of baseball.

Watching Chase Headley these last few years, I always had a feeling he had all the tools to become a superstar. Last year he broke out, and I wasnt surprised at all. I have the same feeling about Belt.
Obviously I agree, but I think this year is really pivotal for him. His comments yesterday definitely were a step in the right direction and I like his confidence right now.

@CSNBaggs: Lincecum wasn't results-obsessed this spring, but he can't feel good about a 10.97 ERA and a 2.25 WHIP.

Essentially that he's not the same player as last year and wasn't fully prepared for major league pitching and that he's stronger mentally.

Admitted his faults and claimed to have found his groove and the mental toughness required to be a good player. He looks good, that's for sure.

Nice, thanks.

I've always defended him, but I'd like to see him translate this success into the regular season first.
Belt hit another HR today. Glad he's having a monster spring but I don't want to get too excited.

I have to remind myself these arizona ballparks are bandboxes for the most part and flyballs get plenty of carry.

True, but none of his homers have been cheapies. All really huge bombs, a couple oppo.

Want him to translate it to the regular season, but I guess we'll see.

Yeah... Wow.

Ive always been a huge Timmy supporter but I've never seen a guys talent fall off like that. Went from arguably the best pitcher in baseball to a top 5 to the worst starting pitcher in baseball.

And why was he so effective out of the bullpen?! I feel it's gotta be because he actually warms up like he should. But obviously dude isn't the same. I'd give him a few starts to see how it goes. But something will have to change if this keeps up.

Still... Posey/Pablo/Timmy have 2 rings and Stras/Zim/Harper have none. Lol
