Red Sox - May Have Signed Renteria
Boston Red Sox - Are really close to signing SS Edgar Renteria to a 4-year contract worth between $40 and $44 million.
Whatever happened to getting a player for a discount coming off an off year?
I’m hearing this is about done, so I’ll take a chance on a really late hour on the slowest traffic day of the week and jump the gun a bit. I fully expect Renteria to bounce back, not to 2003 levels, but at least the 350/430 range. And that’s not so bad since he’s a fine defensive shortstop - not the pretend good like Derek Jeter or flashy inconsistent St. Rey good but actual good good. $11 million may be pushing it if he doesn’t bounce back, but the Red Sox are going full bore to try to eke out a few years out of a not-so-young nucleus, so it makes sense to be a little inefficient in this situation.
