Is Brian Giles all washed up??

Postby mikemcj55 » Wed May 04, 2005 6:07 pm

Hey guys,
Another day, another 0 fer for Giles. What is up with this guy? Just a couple years ago, scouts were calling him "the best complete hitter in the National League outside of Bonds"

I was thinking about trading for Giles, I was wondering what people are projecting for him. Is he worth trading for, or would you consider him to be washed up.

Any San Diego fans weighing in on this would be great. Thanks

If you can get him for next to nothing, go for it....but if you have to give up pretty much anything of value, he's not worth it.

He's a borderline fantasy OFer in most leagues at this point in his career. Definitely not worth the price tag that comes along with him on draft day.

He looks lost. Does anybody think this could be "roid" related?

Looking at the size of the guys head I think that is highly likely.

I traded Brazoban for Giles.

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

He's driven at least 88 runs, and scored at least 93 runs the past 6 years, always hits above .280, and though he hasn't hit more than 35 homers for awhile, you can still bet on more 20-28 hrs from him.

93 runs, 23 hrs, 90 rbis, .285 avg with 10 stolen bases? I'll take that. Borderline fantasy starter? You must be out of your mind.

Sure I'll take that, but that's last year, and I expect it to regress to something like .275, 20, 85, 85, 5.

As I said, borderline in most leagues.
