He is off to a slow start except for doubles. Any predictions
Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer.

Giles is one of those players I think is overhyped by the media and therefore much more valuable in a trade than on your team. If I owned him, I would trade him and if I didn't, I'd stay away. Frankly, I feel the same way about Brian. Maybe I just hate the family or something...

I am thinking about trading him just wondering how much I could get for him.

Why would you think that he would hit 0 home runs even though he already has 16 doubles? Most doubles are just a few feet from being home runs and a player's doubles total is a very good indication of power potential. He will probably hit at least 10-15 home runs for the rest of the year with a lot or runs and a decent amount of RBI. The batting average will rise to above .300 but he isnt stealing as many bases. Nevertheless, now is a bad time to trade him since he is undervalued at this point.

I think you can ask for a solid #2 ML Starter or a fantasy team's 3rd OF. Something like that. The fact that people still have good projections for him mean that now is an acceptable time to trade him. I wouldn't risk him sliding any more because then the negative talk will start. Make sure you have a suitable replacement for him because as far as 2B go, it's pretty slim pickins. Just because you can get value for a guy doesn't mean you should.
