Jorge Arangue, Jr. of ESPN the Magazine tells us of the enmity between baseball's two most notable Colombian players: Edgar Renteria of Detroit and Orlando Cabrera of the White Sox. The two men had a falling out over Cabrera pulling out of an investment in a Colombian baseball winter league.
...."Edgar," the clubbie says, "Orlando Cabrera says he would like to speak to you." But Rentería does not wish to speak to Cabrera, his counterpart on the White Sox, his fellow Colombian. The day before, Rentería explained why to a reporter: "I won't accept dealing with him. I think he's disrespected so many baseball people in Colombia who have been working to improve the sport. And that's not something I can accept, even with an apology from him."
