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.

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.
