Giles is not Soriano, Boone, or Kent. I would definitely put him as the 4th overall 2b this year. He will be close to thier caliber in a few years.

This kid stung the ball all season long...The ball jumped off his bat like only a few top hitters can do......Think along the lines of Bret Boone....only with a better average. It's scary to think that he can improve some more, but it's entirely possibly

Giles wont be hitting 15 home runs this year... :-o

If you project his #8 stats to 505 AB like he had batting second they would look like this

15.3 HR 76.5 RBI .303 Avg

so where is your proof that he won't hit 15 HR?

Regardless of how the projections pan out, 33 AB's isn't a big enough sample size.

He hit 21 HR with Sheff as protection. Now he has the Joneses as protection. I don't see a reason for his HR to drop. As he matures, chances are his HR totals will actually increase.

Giles is electrifying and young and he is surrounded by huge Talent in Atlanta. He's .300-20-20 material all the way.

Last year was not the first sign that Giles could hit. He was a GREAT hitter int he minors and he hit for power. It is ridiculkous to draw and conclusions from a 33 AB sample. I don't remember when he hit htere last season, but it was probably during his big slump.

Mark it down, the guy will be the #2 2B this year. Within 2yrs he'll be hitting 30HRs (maybe this year)

eftda wrote:Why is this guy ranked so dang high? I dont think he will do well. He hit in font of Sheff so his numbers went up... he wont do the same thing in 04

example:

Jeff Kent, he hit in fotn of BArry Bonds in 2002... look at his 3 year numbers

2001 (hit behind Barry):
HR RBI AVG
22 106 .298

2002 (In front of Barry):
HR RBI AVG
37 108 .313

2003 (in a hitters park, No Barry):
HR RBI AVG
22 93 .297


Thats Kent, Aurillia is the same for 2001 when he hit in fornt of Bonds

Lets look at Giles... he had a great year batting IN FRONT OF Sheff... but lets look at his numbers when he hit in other spots...


#2 (In Front of Sheff):
Ab HR RBI AVG
505 20 61 .317

#6(Behind Sheff):
Ab HR RBI AVG
5 0 1 .200

#8 (Behind Sheff):
Ab HR RBI AVG
33 1 5 .303


Giles wont be hitting 15 home runs this year... :-o


I'm sorry, but this is a pretty useless post. Should we assume that if Giles hit's sixth he'll hit .200 with 20 RBI's and if he hits 8th he'll hit .303 with 20 homers and 100 RBI's? What are you hiding under that bag, Eftda?

I think he will do fine this year. I know Andrew and Chipper are not Sheff but that is pretty good protection behind Giles.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I think with Shef and Javy gone, his runs will go down, but every other stat has a good chance of being the same or even better.
