I think he will be very good. I put him in the top 10 of easily.

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

Top 10, I don't know. Pujols, Bonds, Vlad, Manny, Sammy, Wells, Shef, Beltran, Mags, Garret should all go before him, in my opinion (though not necessarily in that order)

But he is way up there.

I expect a .300 BA, 30-35 hr, and maybe 100-110 rbis.

He should be back to his old self, putting up about 30 HR (not quite what he used to hit but not bad), stealing a dozen bases, and getting good RBI/R totals. His avergae should be good, but I don't see him getting close to 40 HR like he used to. If you've seen the dimensions of the new park, you'll know why. RF is huge, except for the area tight beside the fair pole, but it's a very small target to hit before you get to the part of the park that apparently nobody has hit one out of yet (paraphrasing what I heard from an article). He's a good all around player though.

More importantly, he'll also give you 10-20 steals.

Garrett Anderson over Brian Giles? I don't think I could ever do that, even with Vlad...

Will Brian continue to steal 12-15 bases? That is what makes him valuable, in my opinion...

Great opinions...Thanks guys ;-D

Giles should return to form. He is easily a 4th rd pick and should put up

33 HR
110 RBI
100 Runs
310 AVG
15 SB

Even though the dimensions of the ballpark seem a bit cavernous, its still a wild card IMO. Really, for an all around guy like i think that giles is, a difference of 3 to five homers won't make much of a difference if (there's always the IF) he runs a bit.

I agree that he is a top 10 OF. Too bad that sentiment screwed me horribly last year! <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif>
