TIGERS NAB RENTERIA

4

If you are a White Sox fan you should be pretty steamed today. Not only did the best available shortstop not named A-Rod get traded to a team not named the White Sox, he got traded to a huge division rival.

Major, major props to the Tigers for getting Edgar Renteria. Everyone knew he was available, and Dave Dombrowski went out and got him right away. This allows the plan of moving Carlos Guillen to first to come to fruition.

A team that scored more runs than any other AL team save the Yankees just got better on offense. And defense. Renteria has 2 Gold Gloves from 2002 and 2003. While he may not be a Gold Glove in 2008, he will do better than the error-prone Guillen. Guillen made 24 errors last year. Renteria made 24 errors in 2006 & 2007 combined.

It’s just a fantastic move, one I wish Ken Williams would have made.

    Dave Dom has a history of grabbing players the day after the W.S. is over. This is a huge deal for Detroit. That is one tough infield now. Sweeeeeeeeet! FIRE MILLEN MANG!

    Good move for Detroit, BUT they did give up a couple of young STUDS.

    I love how Zoner ALWAYS finds ways to rip the Sox and Cardinals, even when the story doesn’t have anything to do with them.

    How is it ripping anyone? White Sox need Shortstop. Division rival gets a good one. Chicago-centric blog.

    You have issues.

    Oh, I have a lot of issues. I’m striving to become as perfect as you and this blog is hopefully helping me find my way. :)
