Tomkatt: I'm done here, because what I'm saying is, in fact, conjecture. In September, when Giles hits over 20 homers, I'll paypal you ten bucks, if you'd like. It won't happen, but nothing I say is going to prove that - only time and Marcus.


No need to paypal me anything. You're entitled to your opinion just like everybody else. I find yours as interesting as any of them. Like I said in my above post, I can see Marcus hitting only around 15 or so. He is a strong little guy though, so maybe the homers will pick up as we move along. It'll be fun to watch. ;-D

My team is loaded with Braves, so let's hope the offense stays hot in the light Coors air. :-D

If you think Brian Roberts is small please please look at Giles this year. I think his other stats should be OK, but the runs might be down a bit without Sheff back there to knock him in.


That is a ridiculous claim. He looks exactly the same as he did last season or the season before.

He started off slow this year and has been nicked up already. But he is making good contact still and started driving the ball (4 2B in last 3 games) so 20 HR isn't out of the question.


he has not had his usual HR power since his shoulder injury. what has he hit 4 since the collision? he complained about it last season. i thought that he would have had more than one HR at this point in the season....

:-?

but he is fine for averge and runs.

He has 11 doubles, though, and missed a week or so with injuries early on. Now, I don't know whether any of those doubles will turn into homers, but he is driving the ball better than he did when he came back last year. I'd still guess 15-20 HR.
