Alan Drooz wonders if it's time to dump Giles:
Just an idle thought as the Padres hit the one-third mark of the 2006 season: Is it time to dump Brian Giles while they can get something for him?
I guess the only reason why you would dump Giles is to free up money or to get a better player. I don't see many better players that are being shopped around right now. The Padres have been freeing up money for years so that should not even be considered as a reason to dump him. Without Giles our line up is lifeless.
I kind of feel the same way at times about Giles. I love the fact that he draws walks, but in key situations where there is a man on second and first base is open, I want Giles hitting. He's one of our best and I wish he'd take some hacks now and again in with men in scoring position.
Speaking of Giles, here we go again... everytime we play Pittsburgh or Jason Bay hits a home run people start wondering who made out better on the trade: Brian Giles for Jason Bay and Oliver Perez
