You know, I almost hate to even reply here....

I've been a sucker for Furcal seemingly every year, and every year he seems to find a way to screw things up with injuries, errors, or K's. He's fast and brings a decent bat, but I don't like how he thinks he is a homerun hitter lately. I think it hurts him in other areas---like average (who knows how much better, but you can't help but think it's a factor) and more importantly, OBP---something you need with a speedster like Furcal in a lineup that can bring him home.

I also am a sucker for Furcal. There's something about him that I just like..... That said, I drafted Renteria for his career season a couple years back, so I don't mind him either. Overall, if forced to pick I'll probably take Furcal everytime. I just don't see Renteria coming close to that 2003 season again, but Furcal seems to put up solid, and generally similar, numbers every year.....

Furcal easily considering he puts up comparable numbers and is typically a much better draft value.

Really? I've always found Renteria as a much more well rounded player...

But upon looking at the stats, I think my opinion is skewed because of Renteria's dream 2003 season. Furcal is definately better, I better keep that in mind when drafting...

I have had Furcal in a nl keeper league for 4 years. Finally giving him back this year. He is extremely talented, fairly durable, and a good bet to improve on his last year's numbers. With Chipper and Giles healthy he should be able to have a monster year. All that being said. I would keep my eye on Francona's early spring lineups, if Renteria hits in the 2 spot on the sox, he easily could score 110+ runs and drive in 90+... The bottom of the redsox order could be filled with hi obp guys and allow him to repeat that monster 2003 season

Good luck

Basically a push. Furcal is more consistent...Renteria has more upside. I would be inclined to go with Renteria.
