Corey Patterson normally serves as Mr. Opening Day. He's had multi-HR games to start out the season for two of the last four seasons. Dmitri is still a pretty decent player to have on your fantasy league team, though I wouldn't take him as a first pick. If he played his home games in a hitters park, his numbers would dramatically improve. George Bell was the first big power hitter to come out of the Dominican. Without him, there probably wouldn't be a Pedro Guerrero or even a Sammy Sosa. As for Tuffy Rhodes, he was never on my radar screen in picking a team.
