they all have potential but i would say that the least amount of risk is jones, then giles, then if you have wilson you need to cross your fingers and hope that the coors magic hits him again... good luck this year by the way... got enough pitching? jk

All 3 projection wise are close. It will come down to who will exceed their expectations. I see:

Giles 28/101/10/.292
Jones 33/101/6/.270
Wilson 28/10//8/.272

I like Giles for this year. Put up good numbers in first year back from injury. Only see his numbers going up this year.

Yep, look at Preston's '03. The boy hit a whopping .239 the second half. Scary part is that he could do that for an entire season. :-o

Thanks, but no thanks. I'd take Giles and Andruw over him unless I really, really wanted to gamble. :-o

Not to mention Preston's lifetime .265 average. :-o

'Druws lifetime average is .268 8-o
Not much difference there.

Prestons '03 is better than any year that Druw has ever had--he's playing at Coors and I think the guy has a shot at repeating or coming close to those '03 #'s if he's healthy. Druw consistently puts up mediocre OF #'s (at least for 12 team leagues). I'd rather take a chance on a guy like Preston, who has already proved that he can put up top 10 OF #'s.

i gotta go with jones too... my only knock on him is he seems to have forgotten what a good baserunner he used to be... i'd like to see him go back up to 10-15 steals... other than that, AJ is the safe bet... he almost never misses time...

jones probably will reach 30 hr again.. while giles and wilson r close... if wilson has a good spring.. he could be a steal..

Giles - 2nd year in SD, should be in a comfort zone. He's always been a great hitter.
Jones - stats are in a gradual decline (not as good supporting cast this year)
Wilson - listed last due to health concerns.
