    Excellent pickup by Theo & Co.

    "The biggest reason was that Boston is a traditional team," Renteria said from his home in Colombia. "They won the Series this year and I like to play on a winning team like Boston, St. Louis or any team that has the opportunity to win." Renteria, who played for St. Louis last season, is a 4-time All-Star, 2-time Gold Glove winner. He has a career average of .289. St. Louis lost to Boston in four games in the World Series, and Renteria made the last out, grounding out to Keith Foulke. "I played with them for six years but finally we didn't come t an accord." A nine-year veteran, Renteria was one of the prime free agents on the market. His decision came down to Boston and St. Louis. "It (Boston's offer) was more generous.They were more interested in my playing for them." The Red Sox offer also includes an option for a fifth year.

    Rooster's a good pickup, but Wells is certainly not the answer to their pitching questions.

    Granted Wells isn't the big name pitcher who's going to compete for the Cy Young next year but he adds a left-handed arm to their all-righty rotation, adds depth to the rotation, is a reliable pitcher that will chew up some innings, brings a winning attitude and valuable experience to the rotation.
