Edgar Renteria Comes Clean on His Awful Season. No, Not 2008.

… [He] played all last season with a bone spur in his right elbow, about the size of a piece of pea gravel.

— snip —

Renteria hit a career-low .250 with 19 doubles, five home runs and 48 RBIs in 124 games before the Giants turned to hot-hitting Juan Uribe as they fought for a playoff berth down the stretch. It was the fewest homers for Renteria since 1998 and resulted in a season that he called simply “embarrassing.”

… don’t you wonder how he would characterize his 2008 season with the Tigers?

In case he comes up short, here are a few suggestions: slothful, unprofessional, disrespectful, arrogant, dreadful.

Any I missed?


  1. Credit DD for being afraid of Guillen after his comment that if Guillen had to move from SS for a new SS in ‘o8, “he’d better be a good one.” There went getting a light hitting defensive specialist, next thing you know Atlanta is eating Detroit’s lunch by getting Jurrgens. Renteria has been crap for years – where were our scouts??
