With all the trades going on, we forget, or at least I forget that baseball is a business, and there are negotiations that go on also with current players. As Wednesday looms ever closer, so does the arbitration deadline for Brandon Belt’s 2016 contract. Let’s note though that the last time the Giants had an arbitration hearing it was back in 2004.
Belt has asked for $7.5 million and the Giants offered $5.3 million, due to the deadline and how close it is, it looks like they will be focused on a one-year contract compared to a multiyear contract.
So we wait for Wednesday.
