Giants, Edgar Renteria status

Heyyyy fellow bloggers. Just wanted to keep you guys updated on Edgar Renteria. I got some good news for those of you out there that care. Renteria hasn’t done anything on the field for the Giants yet, but did try on

He then tugged at the waist of his pants to show off the two to three inches of excess room. Renteria then said “You can tell.” That shows that Renteria took his off-season seriously to get himself in good shape again. Giants fans would love to see Renteria get his bat back to his 2007 season with the Braves when he hit .332 with the Braves.
 
Jim Leyland the Tigers manager thinks Renteria will be a good player for the Giants. Bruce Bochy has studied videotape of Renteria and doesn’t have any concerns. Renteria still thinks he can play. He said “I always say that if one day I wake up and I feel like I can’t play anymore, I’ll quit, no matter how much money I’m making.”
 
We all know he’s no Omar Vizquel, but we don’t need him to fill those shoes. We just need him to make the plays he should make. We signed him to be an offense upgrade at the shortstop position. I’m sure Edgar will do his job 2nd in the lineup. He can move runners over and he will get on base for Sandoval and Molina.

    Renteria was once a very good shortstop, so if he’s in shape and his head is in the right place, he could give the Giants a big boost. You mentioned Leyland. Didn’t I just read he was arrested for a DUI? Does it ever stop?????

    Hey there –
     
    Nice to “meet” you!
     
    Personally, I really liked Orlando Cabrera at SS for the Sox. I wish we could have kept him around. I was sore about losing him, so Renteria had big shoes to fill as far as I was concerned.
     
    I sure hope Renteria performs better for you guys than he did in Boston. I’m sure he will. He turned on the jets once he left Beantown. His 2007 stats were awesome. I’m still scratching my head over that.
     
    Anyway – good luck this season. I look forward to lots of baseball chatter – you can count on it if Manny ends up in San Fran. ha!
