I'm finding I agree with you often.

Giles appears to play better the second half. I wouldn't sell and I'm definitely buying.

I think Giles will pick up, last I checked he was up over .300 in May and he's in his prime. I expect him to pick up the HR and RBI totals back within career norms soon. Until then, I added Uggla in my 5 x 5 league and will sit Giles until he shows some consistency.

How in the hell did you trade Giles for Soriano?? 8-o In my 12 team league I drafted Giles in the 11rd and Soriano went late 2nd. So I guess it wasn't straight up.

My thoughts exactly, Giles went more like 7th round in my drafts but still Soriano was 2nd rounder for sure sometimes last of the first round. Giles is a decent 2b but not worth Soriano by any means

Weren't people saying how much better Giles is compared to Reyes before the season?

Giles just cleared waivers in my deep 12 teamer so I grabbed him. Here's to hoping he turns it around in the not too distant future :-)

Yup, Matt Cain, Chris Ray and Giles for Soriano, Orvella and Francouer.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!
