Nation Needs to Back Off About the Long Swing, Weak Hits, Slow Running, Bumbling Fielding, Big Contract, and Lack of Leadership from the $40 Million Shortstop

In an excerpt from an interview with WEEI’s Dale and Holley, Tony La Russa talks about Renteria's adjustment to Boston and takes a sneaky whack at Edgar: “I think he (Renteria) comes into this situation, they’re paying him a lot of money, I think the fans, probably the expectation he’s gonna do something like Nomar, in Nomar’s vintage years. And I don’t know if he can be that productive. He’s a sensitive and shy guy and this is why a lot of us worry about him coming into Boston. You know Boston, there’s a lot of expectation here, the fans are very passionate. And they’re not going to be as forgiving as they were in St. Louis. So we’re concerned that if he doesn’t really play to their expectations and they start hootin’ on him, and I know fans don’t want to hear this, but it will not help an Edgar Renteria. I think it will hurt his feelings, and I’m just telling you he’s a really great guy, he’s very good player and I think it’s gonna be hard for him to hide here and I think it takes a special type to play in Boston. Somebody who really likes the attention. Not being able to hide will really bother Edgar.”

BDD Investigation: Edgar's cousin may have Hay Fever, which would explain the slow start. Stay tuned.
