After last season, I'd have to say Giles. He gives you steals, Vidro won't. Reyes isn't established enough for me to take him over those two.

Reyes may not be established yet but Giles has only had one good season. Vidro is established. It just depends on when you can get the player. A lot of people are taking Giles early on behind Boone and Kent. If you miss out on Giles early on you can be safe with Vidro. Personally, if you had to take a flier on a player this year I'd make the choice Reyes. He has a big upside (4-5 cat. player) at a weak position.

That's true, Giles has only one full year under his belt. However, given his brother's history as a power hitter with moderate SB totals, I'm inclined to think Marcus can continue to put up numbers similar to what he produced last year.

I think Vidro is the best pick out of that group. VIdro had some what of a down year last season, but he should rebound back. Then the second choice would be Reyes, even though he really hasn't prooved anything yet, he still is a guy that has a great potential. About Giles, He is a great ball player but I don't think he can repeat last year.

Reyes is a risky pick if the other two are still on the board, but after the allotted amount of games, he will qualify for SS and 2B, which in my opinion puts him up with the other two.

If you always play it safe, you'll rarely win, and I like taking a flyer on Reyes this year, especially since it won't cost you as high a pick as Giles (and maybe Vidro).
It's time to roll the dice.

I would put them in this order.

Giles
Vidro
Reyes

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