What do you see Brian Giles doing this year?

Postby The Jury » Wed Feb 25, 2004 7:37 pm

Usually a 90-35-110 kinda guy with a good K/BB ratio with the Pirates, how will he do in a full season with the Pads? When do you suggest drafting him?

Most are expecting big things from Giles this year and for good reason. I'd draft him fairly early as far as OF go, or someone else will.

I don't look for Giles to do as well in Pitt. His power will drop and I expect a slightly higher average. Prbably a few more runs But HR will drop

And he qualifies at CF. Which doesn't really make a difference, except that I made my yahoo league this year with CF/OF/OF with the rationale that CF is a different position and big league teams are always looking for a good CF.

Thanks wveres...

As for what round... I'm thinking 4th or 5th round. I know I'll snag him in the 5th if his still available. Probably in the 4th round in my abovementioned yahoo league.

I still have to get around to doing my rankings. I've gotten through C and 1B so far, but there's just so much info to catch up on, cheat sheets to wade through, etc... Especially since I haven't been paying any attention to baseball for the last 3 or 4 months.

If he's still hanging around in the 5th or toward the end of the 4th, I'd grab him. I expect a very nice season from him this year. :-)

Giles is a beast. 4th or 5th rd are fine, but I would even consider him at the end or rd 3.
