Renteria retires

Edgar Renteria decided a few days ago to retire, according to this story on mlb.com

Renteria had not played since 2011; he racked up a WAR of 28.9 over his 16-year career. 

He finished 15th in the MVP voting in 2003 with a WAR of 5.3 

Although he's best celebrated for the 3-run HR in Game 5 of the 2010 World Series, I can still see him hitting it out at the 2010 home owner in the 9th to tie the game at 4 off Bill Wagner.  

I checked the box score of Game 5 of the World Series -- there are 3 guys who played in that game who are on the current roster: Posey, Lincecum and Andres Torres. 

Andres Torres RF 4 0 1 0 0 1











Freddy Sanchez 2B 4 0 1 0 0 0











Buster Posey C 4 0 2 0 0 0











Cody Ross LF 4 1 1 0 0 1











Juan Uribe 3B 4 1 1 0 0 2











Aubrey Huff 1B 3 0 0 0 0 0











Pat Burrell DH 4 0 0 0 0 3











Edgar Renteria SS 3 1 1 3 0 0
