Re: 9.13.11 Cubbies v Reds
I can't believe I actually had a couple debates with Reds fans entering the season regarding Renteria v Janish. I said Renteria was clearly the better offensive player even at this stage of his career and many doubted that statement. They said Renteria/Janish were basically equal offensively. Not even close. One of the nice things about this month is hopefully it's the last time I'll ever see Paul Janish in a Reds uniform. ;-)
Renteria is still a very-serviceable backup SS. Definitely not a starter at this stage of his career, but he's a solid backup. Still at least decent defensively and won't hurt you with the stick (for a SS). I don't get his unwillingness to play 3B though. It could extend his career like it extended Tony Fernandez's.
