BTW: how long is he out. I mean Renteria just sucks period. I am not sure now why the Sox got him and Wells.
Well, they got Wells to piss off the Yankees.
I dunno about Guillen doing much of anything on the DL, it bothers me. Especially if it's his hammy, which it is, so he shoud be resting it. The best I can think is that he doesn't plan to be on the DL too long (retroactive to June 8, so he's eligible June 23. Maybe he's just trying to keep him defense sharp in the meantime?? (I dunno exactly want he was doing)
I'm not sure why you brought up Renteria (my guess is you're using him as an alternative to Guillen). But anyways, Renteria got the rep of being a really good offensive SS from is 2003 season. He's not bad, but people can't expect him to repeat that year, or even come close. He's definately been slumping, but don't expect .300/20/100, because it ain't happening.
As for Wells, yes. The Red Sox picked him up mainly to piss of the Yankees. In fact, Wells threatened several times to join the Sox or Mets if the Yankees didn't offer him a contract, just to annoy Steinbrenner. They didn't, so he joined their rivals. Kinds mean, but the man stuck to his word.
