do not worry yet...one 4-4 day with a hr and a couble rbis and his poor start will be a distant memory. giles is one of the more consistent sluggers around.

one more thing to put giles owners a little more at ease is that he is a notoriously slow starter. just go on espn or yahoo and check out his april numbers compared with the others months. it may make you feel a little better.

Yes Giles is a real, I saw him play last year. he is a real person....


just give him some time, bench him if you are hurting for some points.

I think his average is lower then .190, somewhere around .125 now.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Thats what you get for taking Pirates big sluggers! :-[ He is a great hitter though, I got to watch him a ton. That park doesnt favor him, he has been in PNC which favors lefties, so I would expect his homers to decrease a bit. He is just on a slump...
