…. What to do…

With Brandon Belt, Buster Posey and Melky Cabrera. After reading El Lefty Malo’s post on the way these three players’ fates are intertw

What Men Secretly Want

ined, I started thinking about Cabrera’s upcoming free agency. There’s no doubt that Melky is going to get a very nice payday, and if the Giants seriously want him around, they’d better start talking to his agent soon. The more hits and multi-hit games he keeps piling up, the bigger his deal is going to be.

He’ll be looking for his first big contract, possibly his last, and his agent is going to be arguing that he is an elite hitter; and ask for a contract that is in line with his leading all of baseball in hits over the last two seasons.

His career line of .283/.337/.410 .747 OPS is so out of line with this seasons’ .353/.391/.514 .905 OPS that it’s almost looking at two different players. But after last year’s 201 hits in KC, I think it’ll be easy for his agent to suggest that this is a true indicator of a new level of skill for the 27-year old. That said, my guess is he’ll be looking at a deal in the 5 year, $60 million dollar range. He might take more money for one less year, but that’s probably

not gonna make it any easier for Sabean. At this point, every day that goes by, with him continuing to pile up the hits, after winning the All Star game MVP, it’s becoming obvious that he’s gonna strike it rich.

If the Giants do sign him, that makes it harder for them to deal with the issue of Buster Posey and Brandon Belt. As Malo pointed out, Posey has already played first base in 15% of the Giants games. That means Belt is still being shuffled in and out of the lineup. If he’s ever going to become the player the Giants think he is, that has to end. What to do?

Make Posey a left fielder and move Melky to right.
Make Belt a left fielder and move Melky to right.
Trade Belt and make Posey a first baseman.

None of these is really palatable. If Belt is a real hitter, trading him will be a huge loss. If Melky doesn’t want to move to right, then you are looking at putting an infielder in right, which would be very difficult. It’s a tough spot.
