I haven't noticed Furcal being gone, Renteria has been excellent.

159 games, .300 BA, 15 HR's, 37 SB's, helped the Dodgers make the playoffs...

Whatever..

Well, if you're a Dodgers fan, then I guess you would know better than me....but 4bucs has been a lifelong Dodgers fan back during their Brooklyn days, and all he did was complain about Furcal last season, unless I'm getting Furcal confused with someone else he was complaining about last season.

Might've been about his defense. 27 errors or something like that, frustrating for sure. But he gives the Dodgers the best lead-off man they've had since Brett Butler, so the errors can be overlooked as long as they don't start coming at critical times..

Incidently, he did start the season on the DL..  :P :D

I know, that's the first thing I thought of when I heard he was starting the season on the DL. Maybe it was Garciaparra 4bucs was griping about last year.

Maybe you should switch to a team that will actually do something this year...or any year for that matter....typical D-Rays fan.

Considering the horrible 2005 season, any gripes last year had to be taken with a grain of salt.

My gripe was, and still is, the lack of that true home run threat. Even scoring as many runs as Boston did last year, tied for 9th in the majors, I can't help but think what they could do with an Ortiz or a Ramirez sitting in the cleanup spot..

Not sure who 4bucs was complaining about, Nomar got the Comeback Player award. But he did start off slow..

Yeah, considering I have been a Braves fan since I was old enough to watch TV, you got me there.

Of course we just took 2 of 3 from you.  We have owned you the last 15 years.

Get a life and go find a Mets thread.

Yeah, I wasn't too thrilled about Furcal leaving but Renteria has done well. Hopefully Kelly Johnson can do well in the leadoff role vacated by Furcal.

The only thing that sucks about losing Furcal is we don't have any real SB threat anymore. Other than that, Renteria is just as good if not better than Furcal.

I just heard Hampton's gone for the year. Is that really a blow for the Braves? He was pretty much AWOL last year too..
