I've never quite understood the term "position player." "Pitcher" is also a position, isn't it? So I'm not sure what distinction this makes. I've been championing the term "no pitch 'ems" for...

Renteria expects to be fulltime shortstop?

168

Renteria made his expectations pretty clear in remarks to ESPN Deportes: "I feel happy for the opportunity to keep playing shortstop full time. That was the main reason to accept the offer from the Reds." However, "opportunity" here could refer either to the job opportunity itself being that of "starting SS" or the chance to compete for the starting job. Unclear. UPDATE: Maybe it's all sound and fury. Dusty weighs in, hinting at an open audition: "We don’t have a quarterback controversy at short. Everybody plays on my team. They’re both going to play. Janish is younger. Edgar is more experienced. Janish deserves a chance to be my shortstop." ANOTHER UPDATE: Johny Fay tweets: "He was not promised the starting job."

Giants sign Renteria?

471

I don't practice Renteria, I ain't got no crystal ball... According to MLB Trade Rumors, the Giants have signed Edgar Renteria to a two-year, $18M contract. When I wrote my original post about Renteria, I assumed he would get a four-year deal, even though he was coming off a down year. If it's true the Giants only gave him two years, I'm on board, especially as the 2010 FA market is completely devoid of shortstops. And if this deal prevented a 4/$50M deal to Rafael Furcal, then I'll take it as the lesser of two evils. I'll miss the second-round pick, so I'll just assume the Giants were going to pick another Jackson Williams. UPDATE: THIS WAS A TEST OF THE EMERGENCY RUMOR NETWORK. THIS WAS ONLY A TEST. IN THE EVENT OF AN ACTUAL EMERGENCY RUMOR, THIS FANSHOT WILL BE FOLLOWED BY A LONGER FRONT-PAGE POST. Or, to put it another way, according to Henry Schulman, rumors of Renteria's signing have been greatly exaggerated.
