It's also a little scary that he doesn't have as many doubles as he normally would. Once he starts htting the doubles the rest of the numbers will come.


last time i checked he was like leading the league in doubles and earlier in the year he was on pace to break the all time doubles record?

thats just me though, :-D

Anyone think that little Marcus was hitting the juice cup too hard in the past? Those doubles used to be HRs.

I think he just needs to start tanning and shaving his entire body like his brother does. ;-7

I have him and have decided to hold on to him. There aren't any decent 2B out there on the WW and his trade value would be too low at this point. I'll bank on the fact that he's going to heat up in the second half

You just gotta hold onto him. Unless you have another good 2b option, chances are he'll get in gear.

Then again, chances are when he does, he'll get hurt. =)

if i could get close to value for giles i would be moving him..... even though in real life, he is one of my favorite ball players, in fantasy he is just not as good as most think..... i tried to stay away from him in drafts this year,,,, so if i had him now and could get a decent closer or pitcher for him, i would probably be making the move......

I hope he turns it around...

My internet wasn't working for 3 days, and last night when it got going again i saw him on the FA list!! With Vidro and Barmes out this was a god send, don't even ask me how he cleared waivers... it's a sign of good things to come for him... i hope :-o

He's a second half player. There's plenty of time left for him to get hot. I'd hang onto him.

I have M. Giles and R. Weeks in a keeper league where we get to keep 3 people, but lose a draft spot in the following drafts based on when I picked the player.

I drafted Giles in the 6th round and Weeks I picked up FA

Who would you keep? Weeks probably?
