Dare I bring up the Giles vs. Nevin thread now? 2 homers in Nevin's first two at-bats tonight. I'm sure glad I held onto him. Nevin has to be one of the most underrated players in FB. Nobody ever talks about him but....

.296 - 14 HRs - 53 RBIs

is a very impressive statline for a guy who I have barely heard one word about on these boards.

agreed.

i picked him up last year in july and stashed him on the dl, and i was very pleased with the numbers he put up when he came back. i was struggling with injuries, and he filled in nicely for a mid-season pickup, and helped me win.

i drafted him fairly low this year, and i haven't been disappointed.

Some guy the other day described him as a "throw-in" in a trade the other day, and that had me laughing pretty hard. Very glad I have him right now.

Giles is still a better ballplayer.

Just wait til Nevin dives to catch a foul ball :-o

His positions (1B and OF) are rather deep, making him a Utilityman type guy. Add in the fact that Petco isn't too kind on lefty power hitters in the long run and his value isn't too high.

I'm embarrassed...my bad. :*)

I read somewhere that Nevin was complaining about how balls were dying out there. I immediately made the connection that it was due to the air or whatever, along with the dimensions that aren't kind to lefties.

I actually think he has better power to the opposite field so you have a decent point. Can't complain about his numbers thus far though. ;-)

Heehee...my stupidity resulted in a valid point. Don't see that happen often. ;-)
