I think Renteria always has been one of the premier defensive players, plus we also talk about his clutch hitting. We were concerned about his back a little and he's had some weight problems sometimes. But the minute he was available, we hopped on it. It took the front office about three days to get Renteria ... but we had to do what it took to get him. He's that good.
I think it changed the atmosphere in this city a little bit, ... We've always had good clubs, not always veterans. We've always had young kids but nothing to this extent during my tenure. Some of those kids are from the area. It really caught on. It energized the town, and created a tremendous amount of interest in the team. You know, they were kind of the underdog kids, and people root for that.
