Edgar Renteria just doin’ what Edgar Renteria does:

World Series MVP Edgar Renteria has asked that a celebration in his honor be called off in his home country, with the money donated to Colombia flood victims . . . Renteria says there are “more important things back home” and it’s critical to tend to the needs of those left homeless by the recent flooding.

As I sit here today, I can’t think of a single bad thing I’ve ever seen written or heard said about Edgar Renteria the man.  His teammates love him, by all accounts. Writers who research him learn almost uniformly good things. I mean, I’m sure he’s done something he’s not proud of in his life because the guy’s human, but I get the distinct feeling that Edgar Renteria on a bad day is better than most of us on our good ones.

And while we’re on the subject, this post-series story about Renteria by Amy K. Nelson of ESPN is worth a read if you missed it last week.

    Wow, guys like Edgar are refreshing to see.

    The only person I’ve ever heard having a problem with him is Orlando Cabrera…some sort of rivalry. I don’t know anything beyond that, though.
