Here we are, not even in the month of May, and Belt-induced Panic™ is in the air. The narrative on Brandon Belt at this point is well established: he's good, he sucks, he's good again, he sucks, he's good, he had a great spring, and now he sucks again. This yo-yo effect on Belt's talents is exhausting, and I can't recall a player – maybe other than Fred Lewis … ick – that seems to drive the fan base so bonkers. I say that as an ardent Fred Lewis supporter in the great Fred Lewis Wars. Those were heady times … heady, stupid times.
