As a Giles owner ( should we start a support group? :-D ) I am going to bench him for the time being but I wouldn't think about trading him right now. There's just no way to win in that situation. You'll never pull his weight in a trade right now and when he does rebound (and he will) then you have to live with it for the rest of the season.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I will follow this up with an offer of Burroughs, Bernie, and Rollins if he declines. I'm not 100% sold on Giles @ Petco this year, so I am trying not to overpay. (that's why the low ball offer)


even with Burroughs that is still a very low ball offer

In a standard yahoo public league I gave Durazo and Finley for Giles. Although hes doing porly I am very happy with the trade.
Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I traded FOR Giles in a H2H league. I gave up Mark Beurlhe straight up for the slumping Giles. I already have an outfield that consists of Beltran, Mags, Juan Pierre and Shawn Green, so I figured that I'd take a gamble on Giles. If it pans out, I can trade either Pierre, Green or Giles for more pitching.

Just another case of buy low, sell high.
