But he's still better than Mark Lemke, that dude was a S-C-R-U-B


:-D Always big in the clutch, just like Sid Bream. :-D


@ my first job I worked with his sister in Gainesville FL. I guess is just goes to show what a small world we have.

A lot of players wish they could be as "washed up" as Giles was over the past two years.

Giles leads the NL in walks. He went through some tough stretches early last season, too. He'll snap out of it.

Walks? Sounds like the nonsense you hear with Giambi. Let's put it this way, he declined last year in the first year of roid testing...and has imploded this year with more serious testing. Coincidence? Maybe, or maybe he has just entered the no-roid zone like Giambi.

Or maybe he's aging? Just because a hitter starts slow means he was on the juice. Giles never hit super bombs anyway and has been known for his patience. The fact he's still staying back and not chasing bad pitches is certainly a good sign. He'll be fine.
