Marcus Giles. Is he ever going to start hitting the ball?

What is up with this guy. He ran a near .300 batting average for about 4-5 years and he is down around .230. What gives? :-? I burned my WW priority for him a month ago and am getting tired of holding on to him hoping he will turn it up. What are others doing with him?

i did the same thing after someone else dropped him. He has been hitting so far this week, although he was out thursday witha fever. but he seems to be somewhat inconsistent because the week before that he hit like .150 or something. but given his past ability i'm still gonna hold him and count on a hot july and august. baseball, like blackjack, is a game of streaks ;-7

Marcus Giles is a failure in all forms of life. Unfortunately, years of steroid use (seriously with his jawline, he resembles a Cro-Magnon) have led to a degeneration of both his body and his skills.

He's always been streaky... I'm giving him another month to find his mojo, otherwise I bail.
