0 for his last 15, how low can his average go? I'm past the point of being upset now, I'm actually rooting for him to get out everytime now.

I really think it is too early to drop him. Give him some time to get out of this nasty slump, he will. He isnt a very fast starter either. He'll catch on fire soon.(hopefully :-/ ) Oh and NittanyLions, thanks for Aramis Ramirez. Hes been great :-D .

I have him on a couple of my teams and am not real worried yet. I have him on the bench but have no intentions of dropping him.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

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


yes obviously he is real, i know that dont get smart, my question didnt ask if he was a real person, so read carefully next time


I did ;-)
nothing is 'wrong' with him. He is just off to ta slow start. If you are really worried then trade him or drop him. Dont stress out, there is a reason why there are 162 games and not 11. ;-)

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.


i must admit i am beginning to get annoyed.

on most of my teams i have abundant players to substitute, including giles who is on one of them. when players get cold, they get pined. then when they get hot, back to starting
