The only thing that seems to be consistent though, is that whatever it is, it's become a distraction in the clubhouse.
I wish someone would just tell us what it is that's so bad that has made it impossible for Giles to stay a Brave.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

I've heard all kinds of rumors ranging from steroids to drugs to being a raging acoholic to just being a flat prick...all kinds of things.

Who knows, we'll probably never find out.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Yeah, you know...it's so weird. I just never understood why we are seemingly SO desperate to get rid of him. I guess we just have to trade him for a couple prospects and get it over with, if any of this stuff is true. I'm going to miss his production though, despite the fact that he didnt have such a great last couple years due to injuries and such.

Hopefully... seems to be a very good chance we'll non-tender him and get nothing.

Marcus Giles was non-tendered, he is now a free agent.

(Reitsma, too.)

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Doesn't really matter to me.

Giles wasn't in the long term plans and we with all the rumors swirling around him (whether unfounded or not) it was always going to be hard to get value for him in the trade market.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Oh, and I found out the terrible secret about Giles.

Evidently he didn't get along with some of the coaches over the years. Don't know specifics, but the worst incident (whatever it may have been) involved a coach who's not even with the team anymore.

That's it.
