Wow this is a great pick up for the Tigers, Renteria is a great player, and he's going to help the Tigers offensively and defensively. The Tigers gave up a lot to get him, two big prospects, but Renteria already proved himself, who knows if these two players will make an impact in the Majors.
I don't know why Atlanta got rid of him! They got two players that haven't proved themselfes yet in the MLB, and Edgar proved he can mash and he has a great glove also, and he does it consistently. We do have a great athlete in the rising in Escobar, once he developes a little bit more he will do a great job of taking the place of Edgar.
The biggest reason the Braves did it is because they really need starting pitchers and Jurrjens isn't a bad pitcher. He's young and he will develop into a good pitcher.
Also, Guillen was already going to move to 1B. That was decided before this past season ended, which is why they didn't pursue Sean Casey. Moving Guillen over should preserve a year or two of his career.
