Reds nab Series MVP

 

World Series MVP Edgar Renteria (pictured) has agreed to a one-year deal with the Cincinnati Reds, who were looking for a veteran shortstop to replace Orlando Cabrera. The 35-year-old Renteria became a free agent after the Giants declined his $9.5 million contract option. His tiebreaking, three-run homer off Cliff Lee helped the Giants win the World Series. He was hurt most of the season, spending three stints on the disabled list. The Reds also agreed to a one-year contract with Fred Lewis, a left-handed hitter who can play all three outfield positions and bat leadoff. Lewis batted .262 with Toronto last season, leading the club with 17 steals. His 31 doubles were third-most by an A.L. leadoff hitter.
