Welcome back to San Francisco Edgar... now can you bat for the Giants?
Edgar Renteria got a walk off hit in his first ever post season game... Game 1 of the 1997 Division Series winning the game for the Marlins against the Giants.
He got another walk off hit that post season as well. Ask Cleveland fans.
But Giant fans have long forgotten that. They remember Renteria's sudden power stroke and his World Series winning homer off of Cliff Lee.
I really wish he ended his career right then and there.
Instead he is hanging on with the Reds.
While he is only batting .238, he'd STILL crack the Giants line up. Miguel Tejada is NO Edgar Renteria.
Don't believe me?
See if the Reds would trade him straight up for Renteria.
I'm glad the Giants fans gave him a standing ovation.
And even though he sucked as a Red Sox in 2005, Sox fans should applaud him for that other Series that ended off the bat of Renteria... the grounder to Foulke to win the 2004 World Series.
Yes... it ALWAYS has to come back to 2004.
