Marcus Giles?

Postby thatohiosportsfan » Tue May 09, 2006 2:16 pm

.211, 1 HR, 6 RBI????

Is the leadoff spot really affecting him that badly? This sucks, what am I supposed to do with Giles, when is he due to bounce back?

For those of you who picked the Reds to be last in the central (including espn and si)...i hate all of you, and you are wrong...

Just try to stay patient.

I still think he will wind up at .290 15/15

I also hope that Cox switches Giles and Renteria in the lineup.

I hope they switch them. More RBI opportunities. I thought he would run more in the leadoff spot, but it hasn't happened. Seems like I get him every year due to the fact he falls so far in the draft.

If he were to hit .290 for the season, it would mean he would probably have to hit over .300 from here on out. I am fine with that. However, I don't know if that will happen. The thing is, he is usually a very strong starter, but not this year. That is what has me concerned. I was actually hoping he would out homer his brother this year. Doesn't look so good.

I am fed up, I am trying to sell him low, I don't care. Seems like there are better options on the wire.
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

I wouldn't count on that type of switch. Giles is getting a fair number of walks relatively speaking and Renteria is getting hits. It make sense right now to keep them in the order they are.

a little side note: giles' started a family to begin the season. I can recall 2 or 3 instances where players had a son or daughter at the start of the season and had terrible seasons. Id drop him and move on before there is no other 2B option on the wire. that's just me though.

Interesting theory. I don't buy it, but interesting.

Giles didn't just start a family this year. While he did have a child in spring training, he has another daughter who is a couple of years old. There were some complications due to the premature birth, but his new daughter is reported to be fine now.

I started the year w/ loretta, giles was dropped, I passed, someone else used their waiver. I dropped loretta for Biggio. I know what im getting w/ Biggio. I'll take Biggio over Giles this season in an instance.
