Edgar Renteria
More news breaking in Spanish today, as reported that World Series MVP Edgar Renteria has decided to return for at least one more season. Renteria had contemplated going out on top after the Giants' victory.

"I'm staying. I feel that I still have a lot of baseball in my body," Renteria said by phone from his home in Miami. "[On] Monday I have a very important meeting with my agents to talk about my future, but I have already decided I will keep playing. That's all I can say until I meet with them."

The Giants did not pick up a $9.5 million option for next year, and Renteria will be free to negotiate with any other team starting at midnight Saturday night.

The 34-year-old shortstop batted .412 and drove in six runs in the World Series, including a three-run homer off Rangers ace Cliff Lee that accounted for all the Giants' runs in their clinching Game 5 victory. In the regular season, he batted .276/.332/.374, though he appeared in just 72 games and went on the disabled list three times.

Renteria not retiring

Although I live in the Bay Area and am familiar with the Giants I never paid much attention to their hitters/fielders...mainly because over the past few years they had brought up every player they had. Only fielder I know is some guy named Buster Posey...the 2010 NL Rookie of the Year and some other guy named Aubrey Huff. When I saw Renteria in the playoffs I thought he was Livan Hernandez. Both have similar dark features with a plump looking head. Little did I know that this guy was the oft-injured and very much maligned over paid Edgar Renteria who the Giants signed away from St. Louis. Looks like he wasn't over paid anymore by the Giants. But since he did win the WS MVP I am guessing that he will get a much bigger and longer contract by another desperate team.
