Edgar is Hurley. Or Something.

He's played for the Marlins, Cardinals, Red Sox, Braves, Tigers, and now the Giants.

Not so affectionately known by many Sox fans after his 1 year in Boston as E6 or Rentawreck, he's got an uncanny knack for being a pivotal figure in the post season.

He drove in the winning run in Game 7 of the 1997 World Series win for the Marlins. He was the last out in the 2004 World Series for the Cardinals against Boston. He was the last out for the Red Sox in '05 when they got swept by the White Sox in the ALDS.

And now? All he did tonight was hit a 3 run bomb off the Immortal Cliff Lee (IF you believe FOX. Apparently Cliff and Jesus are the only two people ever to walk on water. I love the guy, but gimme a break already.)

It's the top of the ninth, Giants lead 3-1 in the game and 3-1 in the series and once again Edgar Renteria is right in the middle of it all.

I'm pretty sure this could have been a plot line on LOST.

Baseball is a funny game.
