World Series MVP Edgar Renteria said over the weekend that he has no plans to hang ‘em up and now he tells Enrique Rojas of ESPNDeportes.com that he is willing to move to second base in order to prolong his career.
Spoken like a true free agent. For all his injuries and general lack of production over the past two seasons, Renteria is still a perfectly capable defensive shortstop. Perhaps moving to a less demanding position would allow him to stay on the field, but this sounds like an effort to increase his marketability rather than his true preference. He’s not going to find anywhere close to the $9 million he made this past season, but the 35-year-old should be able to find a starting job somewhere.
