The Red Sox will be picking up a portion of the remianing $29 million on Renteria's 3-year contract - how much though is unknown at this time. The Red Sox are expected to look into signing a free agent shortstop(Nomar anyone?) rather construct a deal that would flip Andy Marte to Tampa Bay for Julio Lugo. Dec. 8 - 11:52 am et

Oh, the irony of Nomar returning to Boston for short money in what would have been the 3d year of a 4x15 deal he turned down in spring training '04.

They'll be paying Renteria slightly less than market value.

I still don't think it's worth giving up Marte for PLUS blocking Betemit. This definitely means Betemit is gone.

Nice..Good Job JS!!! ;-D
Ill take Edgar for 6 mill/year!

I think Betemit will stay with us as a Util man like he was last year.

Could Betemit play 3rd eventually?

That's where he spent most of last season, covering for Chipper. I doubt it will be with the Braves though, our future 3B is likely to be Eric Campbell.

Yes please explain to all the idiots how Renteria is a future HOF.

6M a year isn't bad. And he does give us a "sure thing" until our truly studly SS guys are ready for the majors. I was more worried about ending up trading the equivalent of Marte and Furcal for like $1-3M a year for three years....

Still, when you consider that Marte's floor is probably somewhere in the Matt Williams range, you've got to wonder about trading him away for anything.

*sigh* I was really excited about watching Betemit next year, too.

I have also heard that the Red Sox are interested in O.Cabrera...funny that they could have signed him last year and saved a lot of trouble and money with Renteria. Anyway I think this opens up a opportunity for the Angels to get Manny if they are willing to part with OCab...it will obviously take more than that but I have a feeling that there is more moves coming from Boston...
