No, why would u & the giants want that, He's more valuable behind Bonds, because then if they walk Bonds & Feliz makes em pay, bonds will see some pitches eventually, or maybe not but gints will score if Feliz is dirving in a ton of runs.

Because batters who hit before Bonds tend to see a lot of fastballs

No question Feliz is in a serious groove right now. If you own him, shop him. The hype machine is on tilt after tonight, and his value may never be higher than it is right now.

Feliz is a .268 lifetime minor league hitter, and was at .242 in 608 big league AB coming into this year. No question that he has power, definite 25-30 HR potential. But he won't be a .300 hitter, won't deliver speed, and may not deliver all that many runs with what's behind him in the Giants lineup.

Plus side is that he'll have multi-position eligiblity. Definitely 1B-3B and maybe even 2B. But with Durham's return, he also loses a start or two weekly.

If you can find an eager buyer hurting at 3B (try Glaus or Koskie owners with the DL looming for both), he's great trade bait.

I agree that Feliz could lose starts when Durham comes back -- however with the Giants struggling as a whole, there's no way they sit this guy. His multi-position eligilibity will only help the cause (in keeping him in the lineup.

The most encouraging news is that Alou has committed verbally now to keep Feliz batting fifth behind Bonds -- with that commitment, it's obvious Feliz is here to stay.

This is as committed the Giants have been to letting Feliz play, and in the spot behind Bonds, I expect him to continue to see good pitches. Ive owned him since week 1...

I also picked up Feliz before the season and was pleased with his production so far. However, i traded him for Steve Trachsel yesterday cause i needed a better 4th SP(20-team league). Of course,that was before he hit those 2 HR last night.
Here are the things to keep in mind before going crazy over Feliz:

this year- 22K-1BB

career- 153K-27BB .252 avg

Definitely sell high. Anyone who has watched him play could see that he will swing at anything. It's only a matter of time before pitchers figure him out and start rolling the ball in to him and watching him flail away.

he does swing at alot of horrid pitches, & it is frustrating how Alout sits him from time to time. all good points on selling high. but the reward of 35 homers & 100 + ribies is just too enticing, I'll see I might try & sell him high for a decent closer

He hit 16 HR's in a little over 200 AB's... That is a sic ratio!

He has been on the SF radar for several years, and now is about to get the AB's he deserves.. He might be the super sleeper of the year, if he continues to hit behind Bonds all year and gets 500+ AB's... His ceiling is extremely high.. I wouldn't dare give him up in a trade yet!


Just my opinion on the situation... :-°
