Edgar Renteria now has 20 errors this season, putting him on pace for 29 errors. That would surpass his career high of 27, set in 2000 with St. Louis. ER doesn't just lead all major league shortstops in errors, he leads all major league players in errors. $10 million this season for 20 errors, a .278 average, 6 homers and 41 RBI? Can you say OVERPAID!
Tim Wakefield ended yet another Sox skid on Sunday. It marked the fourth time this year he's halted a losing streak at two games and the third time he's helped the team avoid a series sweep. Wakefield notched a career high 11 strikeouts, which is also the season high for a Red Sox pitcher.
The Sox have maintained a winning record in every month dating back to July 2004. That's the right kind of consistency.
