Watched some of the WS. The Andrus kid is talented, and Renteria was
the MVP. I wonder what it would take for the Braves to get a shortstop
like either one of those guys?

Great question! And now I will shoot myself in the face.

(Though I do feel a little bit better knowing that the Braves had good company
in
being unable to hit Giants pitching).

I couldn't see either one of those guys ever being a Brave.

You should ask Zig. He traded for him in the coffeeshop league a few
years ago.

Teixeira (plus a throw-in, IIRC).

In a strange parallel, Tex is also what it took to get Andrus.

Yep, I got Tex and Omar Vizquel. That was my last good fantasy run
too.

not that i looked really smart, but i am still of the opinion that a strong
hitting SS is worth more than a strong hitting 1B.

I don't know, I know he's only 21, but a full year of 588 at bats of .
643 OPS and having been caught stealing 15 times to his 33 stolen
bases doesn't sound like something I'm going to miss anytime soon, no
matter how good his defense is.

I'm not sure you do know he's only 21. He's as at least as valuable
as Alex Gonzalez, while also being 12 years younger and $2 million
cheaper.
