Anyone get any tingly feelings between their legs with him in Atlanta? I think he's going to be a bargain as far as draft position. I think I feel a slight tingle...but I may just have to go to the bathroom. Thoughts?

He should provide better Run totals hitting either #1 or #2 in the lineup. I like him this year but not earlier than a 10th round pick.

I've had the same thought, and wondered why nobody's talking about him much. Renteria's still only 30, and you gotta think he's a good candidate to rebound from a down season. He's back in the league he knows, playing for a perennial contender. It seems like a lot of guys have career years when they get to Atlanta. You wouldn't look for a career year from Renteria -- 2003 is going to be tough to ever top -- but he could easily resume being one of the most productive SS's in baseball. And he'll still be on the board midway through most drafts. Sounds like a pretty good guy to target to me.

Renteria only 30? Wow he got old fast. (it's probably just me)

I belive Renteria will continue to get worse. Career .690 OPS in Turner field in 131 PA.

Renteria's 2005 performance seem to get magnified because there was a lot of hype surrounding him going to Boston. But his 04 and 05 seasons were very similar other than that his SB dropped from 17 to 9. There really isn't much to rebound from and he'll never put up a year like he did in '03 again. I think his SB can get back to 20 and along with a .280 BA with 90 R. That makes him a pretty good option if he drops. Otherwise he's fairly mediocre (in mixed leagues) and certainly doesn't give me any tingling sensations.

He hit second for most of the last season infront of two guys who combined to nearly drive in 300 runs. Expect his run totals to drop below 100.

He only drove in 70 last season, but the pitcher will be hitting in front of him this year...

No. Marcus Giles will be hitting in front of him.

Are we sure he's batting 2nd? In STL he always said he didn't feel comfortable batting 2nd and it showed in Boston.

Well I'm sure anyway. You'll have to ask Bobby Cox for the ultimate answer.

The chances of him leading off with ATL lie somewhere between slim and none.
