Padres outfielder Brian Giles filed for free agency on Thursday, the San Diego Union-Tribune confirmed. The team has made an offer to Giles, but agent Joe Bick said the proposal was "not close."
The 34-year-old Giles was a fantasy stud before moving from Pittsburgh to San Diego, and we'd certainly like to see him play in St. Louis, Boston, Oakland, or just about any other city. Brian's .301 average and 38 doubles suggest he's still a capable batsman, and he could be a bit of a fantasy sleeper depending on where he ends up.
What do you guys think about his value now? Not only is he moving out of San Diego but he gained CF eligibility.
just looking for some thoughts....
