Beltran: Band-Aids Don’t Cure


Not too long ago the trade deadline was fast approaching. The first place Giants were hoping for a cure for their ailing offense. Enter Carlos Beltran. Unfortunately for the Giants, trades are not always the cure for everything. The playoff hopefuls, who are now six games out of first in the NL West, have not seen the surge in their offense they were looking for. In the last seven games, Beltran is batting .267. Although it may be easy to blame the new guy, Beltran’s not entirely to blame for the Giants’ decline. During the month of August, the team averaged .231 offensively and are ranked 29th overall in batting average. Click on the charts below to take a closer look at the Giants’ struggling offense. And to my Giant fans out there: Looks like you didn’t strike gold with this trade!
