Brandon Belt Finally Listens to Someone
As all of you probably know, Brandon Belt won the National League Player of the Week. I’ve been gone and I missed the news about the changes he’s made in the batters box. This morning, I read an article at the Merc that detailed the changes he’s made, mostly in his grip as well as a move back in the box. Apparently, our esteemed batting coach Sir Hen had to beg Belt to talk with Dominic Brown, of all people, who finally convinced him to make these changes. If you haven’t read the story, here’s the link:
My question: Why does our batting coach have to seek out a player from another team to convince this guy to change his batting approach? He’s nearly completed his 2nd full year in the bigs and he won’t do what he’s told until Dominic Freaking Brown says to do it?
Well thank God for Dominic Brown. I mean, what a guy. If this big league outfielder thing doesn’t work out for him there’s always a warm spot as SF Giants batting coach waiting for him…….
