Jeter or Renteria?

Postby blankman » Sun Jul 13, 2003 11:35 pm

Jeter looks like he's starting to come around and the eventual SB's (my weakest category) would be nice.

Which would you rather have for the rest of the year given these categories?: R H HR RBI BB SB AVG

thanks. as always, explanations are appreciated

tough choice

Postby pkarr5000 » Sun Jul 13, 2003 11:51 pm

This is a very tough choice. All though Jeter bats near the top of baseballs best lineup, giving him a TON of runs, renteria is the better shortstop. A lot of people have high expectations for Jeter after the All Star break but the truth is, he won't get that better. People forget that Jeter still has that shoulder thats nagging him. On the other hand, Renteria is a good offensive shortstop who bats behind Rolen, Edmonds, and Pujols. Plus he steals a few bags too. This year I like Renteria because he will have a HUGE second half along with his team, which tradidionally does well after the all star break. But next year, I would love to have Jeter because of the players the boss might bring in. (Kaz Matsui, Miguel Tejada, Carlos Beltran, Vladimir Guerrero)

But overall, I would rather have Edgar.

Renteria by a landslide, he's healthy, he runs more (more SBs), hits for a better avg., and is even in every other way in terms of fantasy

I carry Renteria on 2 teams, and Cabrera on the third. I think Jeter is overrated anymore. I voted Renteria.

I agree that Jeter is overrated, but he looks like he's starting to get back to form. This question is for the rest of this year only.

Jeter is without a doubt one of the most over-rated players ever to play the game. If he played in Milwaukee, Montreal or any small market city, he'd be just another player.

He's lucky he plays in NY where they can over hype his "greatness".

How does that have anything whatsoever, to do with the topic? :-t If you want to talk about him being overrated, make your own thread.

The question is which you'd rather have for the rest of this year.

I agree Jeter is overrated. And for the rest of the year? I'd take Edgar... he's clearly playing much better this year, and there is hardly a hole in the Cards lineup.

Though I agree with those that say they'd rather have Renteria this year, anybody who truly thinks Jeter is overrated doesn't know a @#$% thing about baseball. He scored over 100 runs seven years in a row while driving in at least 70 each year during that span, he has a career batting average of 317 and he has decent power and speed, all this at the short stop position, at which, by the way, he plays superb defense.

And unlike ARod, Nomar and Tejada, and whomever else you care to mention, Jeter has gotten it done in the playoffs, being arguably the best player on a World Series championship team severa times. I'm not saying he's better than ARod and Nomar. I'm just saying you have to put all of that stuff into perspective. Anybody who thinks Jeter is overrated is just a stathead, and I'm not even a Yankees fan.
