Reyes, because I think he has the potential to match Giles as a hitter, and he also brings steals to the table.

I like Reyes and all, but Giles is a much better bet to perform this year. He had an incredible 1.027 OPS after the break last year proving he's no fluke.

cbssportsline says that reyes has pu on 15 pounds of muscle and art howe has said that we should see an increase in his power, he hit a homerun in an intersquad game, and granted its a small example, but howe said that "he turned the wind around on it, he absolutely crushed that ball"

so i dont know, i think giles may go down a bit this year, losing sheff, and reyes may go up, but for now i would go with giles, though i think reyes has much more upside
Reyes and guerrero, the two most blessed players in the league, not to mention the most fun to watch

reyes desperately want to hit the long ball (you know, cause chicks dig it)

but if he did bulk up and will try to pull the ball it that cavern of a home park you can say buh-bye to a .300 average

I like giles....he's a notch below brett boone....and it's a small notch
YAHOO! RULES!!!!!
