Tigers deal for Edgar Renteria

And the hot stove season is off, with the first trade going down...

The Tigers have traded Jair Jurrjens and Gorkys Hernandez to the Braves for shortstop Edgar Renteria...

Pretty nice haul for the Braves, who were ready to hand the shortstop job over the Yunel Escobar anyway.

And seems to make the Tigers non-factors in the looming ARod sweepstakes, unless they want to keep ARod at third base and put Brandon Inge back into a super-sub role.
