I have giles and was hoping he'd return to form. I'm watching the game on ESPN and hate hearing... he won't do that [hit 37 hrs] here [petco]

I have faith in him. I'm sure he'll have a good year but will it be a 100-20-100 year or a 100-35+-100 year?

I think after playing a few more games at Petco the players will finally get used to it and adapt to the park.

I'm looking for Giles to hit 30+ this year :-b

Adapt? They'll need steroids.

Petco's deep right center field fence is really going to suppress left-handed power. If you have Giles or Klesko and can get good value for them, it might be a wise idea to send them packing.

Phil Nevin, on the other hand, should be fine. Reasonable fences in left.

That's funny.

I just hear Joe Morgan say that folks orignally said that the Ball Park at Arlington was huge and then summer came along and boom!!!

I have faith in Giles. I'm sure he'll have a good year but will it be a 100-20-100 year or a 100-35+-100 year. It worries me.

To add a note --- no Padre home runs in Petco yet. It's only four games... but still.

giles is a pull hitter isnt he? therefore this shouldnt worry him too much as the right field line aint that bad. apparently it will get better as it starts to warm up in san diego too.
