B. Roberts or M. Giles?

Postby futanto » Wed Apr 20, 2005 2:28 am

Who do you think will be a more productive player this year between Brian Roberts and Marcus Giles?

Unless he gets injured again, Marcus Giles is the man.

Good question, I have both in my league...

If you need the steals, go with Roberts, if you need the RBIs and a few more HRs go with Giles
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

I still think Giles will be the No 2 or 3 2B by the end of the year. Roberts will cost you too much if you're trying to get him in a trade, though.

I have both also. I'll probably squeeze out a little more from Roberts and let Giles ride the bench or take my utility spot in place of tex for a another week or so. Then I'll trade Roberts while his value is still high... but then again I said this a week ago.

If you have both, I'd pull the trigger on a Roberts trade as soon as he shows signs of faltering, but that's just me.

Way too late to trade for Roberts. Their numbers should be closer than people think, as long as Roberts keeps this up for a decent amount of time. But you'd be insane to not to start him right now.

Start fielding trade offers for Brian Roberts right now...jump on a big deal. You can make somebody pay. It only takes one to believe.
