Edgar Renteria?

Postby Mr. Smithers » Wed Aug 06, 2003 3:05 pm

My league keeps telling me this is a one year fluke. The guy has been pretty consitant in the past. His numbers are way up this year. I personally think he is coming into his on. 27 is around the age MLB player are supposed to hit there stride. I think he'll do just as good or even a little better next year. Please give some insight on what you guys think.

edgar is an exellent ss, i think a brilliant career lays ahead of him. i would have drafted him if i didnt have miggy at ss already. i dont even have him and im an astros fan, but i wish he could hit at number 2. hes perfect there, him and jeter were meant to hit #2.

I don't think he's a fluke. He's having a great year and will continue to do so.

he is a different player than he was a couple years ago. he was rumored to be on the trading block a few years back and after the deadline passed and he was still a cardinal he has been a little bit different. he has a better attitude. not that he had a bad attitude, it just seems like he has turned it up a notch and seems a little bit more relaxed. he is a good hitter and very good with runners on base. he should be a .300 hitter for a while and should get plenty of rbi's in that lineup. the amount of stolen bases this year has surprised me somewhat as he was around 20 for the previous three years. he did some running with the marlins though.

take a look at his splits and you will see that he had a great second half last year and picked up right where he left off. i expect about the same next year.

I drafted him this year because he's improved every year and I've been far from disapointed. He's a great all-around ballplayer and one of the best shortstops in the game. I'm really excited about having him in my keeper league and I personally think he'll only get better. ;-D

I agree that he's great and his performance this year has pretty much flown under the radar--I guess that's what happens when you play on a team with Pujols and in a league with Arod. I don't know if he'll keep up these great stats next year, but he's proven himself to be an elite option. Personally, I'm hoping to get him lower than he should be next year, since he doesn't have the name recognition of some of the other SS's.

I don't think that he'll get better next year. That's being a little too optimistic. That being said however I don't think that this year was a fluke I coincidentally just looked at his splits last night and as the guest said he really turned it on last year after the All-Star break. He hit .327 with 7 homers and 12 for 14 in stolen bases versus .287, 4 homers and 10 for 15 in steals. I think that that shows that he broke out at about the expected age and is playing at a higher level now that he should be able to stay at for awhile.

If your league thinks he's a one hit wonder then all the better for you. You should be a ble to get him for cheaper next year. Just be careful that they are not doing that just so that they can get him next year.

Edgar will only get better. He will never be a "power" guy like ARod, but will be a great RBI/AVG/STEALS guy for many years to come.

I'd take him over Jeter 8-o

i agree. i think beginning next season the new big 3 is arod, nomar and edgar with miggy a close fourth. jeter is a great player but fantasy wise he's a solid #5 at short.
