Just about nobody could figure out exactly why the Giants were cutting Pat Burrell and even less why the Giants would send down Brandon Belt who was just recalled.
I mean, common sense says both situations were pretty silly – but CSN Bay Area “confirmed” it – Belt was going back to Fresno, Burrell was cut. Except that neither was true. Nor was the earlier reported Beltran trade in exchange for multiple Giant prospects which CSN Bay Area also leaked this past afternoon.
So in short – everything other than Burrell being released, Belt being optioned and Beltran traded for Runzler and company was true. All none of it.
CSN Bay Area trolled Giant fans like a glorified Rick Roll.
Maybe next time they’ll drop a “Giants release Posey” tweet just for a good chuckle.
