The 2005 season was a disappointing one for Rentería. Replacing fellow Colombian and fan favorite [[Orlando Cabrera]] at shortstop, who had jump started the [[World Series]] winning team the year before, and [[Nomar Garciaparra]] before him, was not an easy job. Rentería committed a league-leading and career high 30 errors in 2005, blaming the "demand" of the Boston fans and media, and poor conditions of the field. He also pointed to an injury when he "pulled [his] lower back and leg" [http://www.boston.com/sports/baseball/redsox/articles/2005/12/12/renteria_says_he_wanted_out/?page=full]

Although much maligned for his defensive problems in 2005, Rentería scored 100 [[runs]] in a season for the first time in his career. Ironically, the season before, Rentería was the [[St. Louis Cardinals|Cardinals']] final out in the [[World Series]] when the [[Boston]] [[Red Sox]] won their first championship since [[1918]]. The next year, he was the last out in the [[American League Division Series]] for the Red Sox when the [[Chicago]] [[White Sox]] defeated Boston and went on to win the [[World Series]]. Rentería was traded by [[Theo Epstein]] after the 2005 season to the [[Atlanta Braves]] for prospect [[Andy Marte]]. Healthy and seemingly more relaxed in 2006, Rentería has returned to the form that made him such a valuable [[shortstop]] for many years in the [[National League]]. Due to his poor play, Renteria also became fodder for the local sports shows. WEEI (the Boston Sports Radio Station) nicknamed him "Diarreah and Rent-A-Wreck."
