Reds sign Renteria

Quote:
A reader tipped me that Edgar Renteria's hometown newspaper was reporting that he has signed a deal with the Reds. I had no idea what Renteria's hometown was, so I asked someone on Twitter and a couple clicks later I found this story:

El pelotero barranquillero Édgar Rentería jugará con los Rojos de Cincinnati la temporada de 2011 en el béisbol de las Grandes Ligas. El Jugador Más Valioso de la Serie Mundial 2010 con los Gigantes de San Francisco, firmó un contrato de tres millones de dólares por un año más bonificaciones por logros obtenidos.

I plunked it into Google translate, which thought that "milliones" was "billion" for some reason, when it's clearly not, so whatever. I can fake my way through that Spanish enough to figure out that they're reporting that it's a three million dollar deal for one year. Not sure if that means "plus incentives" or "with incentives" at the end, but I'm sure we'll know soon enough.

No word from the team or anyone stateside. We'll obviously update when there's some confirmation.

Oh I hope they did pick him up. He's the type of player IMHO that is good to have around.

I wish he would've been more productive for us while being in Detroit but he is a good club house player.

Well he is getting older, but he always seemed to me that he would make a good teammate on any team.

He was good enough to win a championship in SF

Yes I know, but what is it about MVP Players in the W.S. getting traded? To me Timmy was the "real star" anyway
