Jeter or Renteria

What the hell do 8 year totals prove? :-D

8 year totals prove that Jeter puts up better offensive numbers on a consistent basis. Renteria could just as easily hit .270 this year and only swipe 20 bags. He hit .330 last year and .305 the year before that. Prior to that he was a .270 hitter. Last year he stole 34 bases the three years prior to that he barely stole 20 per.

Jeter went in the 4th round of our draft this year. I wasnt planning on having a big name SS this year. But when the 8th round came around and Renteria was still out there.. well I gladly took him. I think you cant go wrong with either Jeter or Renteria.. but i like the SB's Renteria gets. I personally think they'll be close in stats this year. And since i got Rent 4 rounds later and built up other parts of my roster and still landed Rent that late.. i'd have to say i like Rent better. If you can get the quality of a 4th round pick at the 8th round, you gotta like the value of the 8th rounder alot more.

I'll admit that I didn't know that Jeter's average was that high last year. But Renteria is a better fantasy player.

His rbi's will probably take a dip in the 2 spot, but his runs will go up, hitting in front of Pujols.

Jeter had one year in his career with over 100 rbi's and he played on some other great hitting teams, so I'd say that they're about even there.

Now, stolen bases. If you honestly think that the Yankees are gonna run Jeter like they did in 2002 then be my guest. But it makes no sense to me why they'd run Jeter a lot. 20 sb's is a stretch. Jeter was severely injured last year sliding into a base and this year he's followed by a bunch of guys who hit for power, average, and can take walks. It makes no sense to run him like 2002 in this lineup and with his 2003 injury.

With Renteria in the 2 hole the Cards are gonna be giving Renteria the green light this year at least as much as last.

The disparity in stolen bases is what separates Renteria from Jeter.

Jeter should have at least 5 more jacks than Renteria, but steals (especially in the infield) are a much more difficult stat category to fill than jacks.

I think it's a little early to say you've won.
