you cant compare sheffield to bonds. you cant compare anyone to bonds. giles is a solid player, and will be hitting in front of jones and jones, so i mean there are still some guys there that can hit him in. As far as his other stats will go, this will be only his second full season....i can only see this guy getting better.
Marcus Giles hit in front of Sheff last year, in his first full season and hit 20+ HR. Now he's hitting in front of the Jones boys. I don't see a decline in HR's. He will eventually be one of the top 2B's in baseball, along with Rickie Weeks. And by then, Soriano will be in the OF and Kent and Boone will be retired.
"Jack, will you call me, if you're able?"
"I've got your phone number written, in the back of my Bible."
That was a total of what, 38 ABs hitting anywhere besides in front of sheff? Compared to 505 in front of sheff. Whether there is truth to the fact that he only did well hittin in front of sheff those numbers definitely won't be the ones that convince me.
Larry and Druw should provide enough protection anyway.
Sheffield wasn't the one hitting the 21 hr's and 49 doubles that Marcus did. The player does that, not the player after the player. Marcus is a stud. Wasn't Kent hurt anyway? DL? Boo for those stats.
