Furcal - yes, renteria - no. Furcal is very young and very, he should only get better. Edgar is pretty young also, but he is entering his 8th year pro and none of his other 7 have been impressive. I would attribute his good year so far to Edmonds, Rollins, Pujohls and J.D. It's not too hard to have a good year when you have 4 studs batting in front of you, getting on base, forcing pitchers to give you looks and just making life way easier on you. Furcal may have the advantage of having some great hitters behind him, but as a lead off man he gets on base almost all the time, he has the speed to steal and turn singles into doubles regularly and he has the bat to more than occasionally knock one out of the park. In the leadoff spot, you are on your own to create something out of nothing and get rally's started, which is what Furcal does. All Edgar does is keep the rallys going occasionally once the 4 studs start them up.
