I had real high hopes for Giles this year, 27 years old, batting lead off, coming off a nice year, etc.
I haven't had the resolve to drop him yet, but have benched him several times for the likes of Vidro, Philips, Kinsler. Seems like everytime I do this, I miss Marcus' only decent game of the week.
Anyone, maybe some ATL locals, have any insight on this? Is he banged up? Is it the pressure of batting lead off?
If he doesn't turn it around by All-Star break, I've seriously got to consider dropping him.
