The 2002 version with 103 RBI, 38 HR, and 15 SB; or the 2003 version with 88 RBI, 20 HR, and 4 SB?

Out of Pittsburgh, but is San Diego an improvement? Petco Park's deepest spot is the power alley in right center, 411 feet. Thats bad news for a lefty slugger like Giles.

His numbers at Pitt were incredible when you consider he had no
protection in the lineup. If he stays healthy, I think he will put up
near MVP numbers this year. I wouldn't be surprised to see the
Padres run away with the NL West this year.

Giles had a great spring training:

.386 Avg
.789 Slg%
4 HRs
15 RBI
12 Runs

Not that spring training stats are that important. I expect a return to 2002 form or something close to it. I actually drafted Giles in the 12th round this season! ;-D

Brian Giles will reclaim his spot as an elite fantasy player and a top 10 outfielder.

There are very few players that put up the consistency year after year then Giles does (obvioulsy throwing out 2003. )

I will put Mr. Giles down for

105 Runs
34 HR
110 RBI
10 SB
305 AVG

I agree. I could see him hitting for a little higher average than .305 this year, too. He'll have more decent bats around him this year than he ever had in Pitt.
