Giles will still be the 4th or 5th 2B drfated in Kepper leagues, but you are probably getting the best guy at the position for the long term!
Last year, M Giles was the 22nd rated second baseman going into the season. I think he's getting fairly overrated (as are Berroa and Ensberg) due to one good season.
Someone in my Yahoo! league (20 teams) selected him in the 3rd round, which we all scoffed at. And while Giles turned out to produce a 2nd round pick's numbers, he still could have been picked in the 10th round and actually made that owner a profit last season. One good reason not to overdraft your sleepers. That's what the final three rounds of the draft are for.
And BigL, I would pick Reyes over M Giles for the long run.
Edit: I would pick Boone and Kent first in a keeper, though.
Another Year, Another Championship. I'm 2 for 2.
