Edgar Renteria, the Most Valuable Player of the World Series, kept coming back to the same one-word description after the Giants' clinching victory Monday night.
"Unbelievable," he said, over and over. "Unbelievable."
All of it seemed like a hazy dream, from Renteria's three-run home run in the seventh inning to the shiny MVP trophy dampened with his tears and smudged with his fingerprints -- a scene dripping with emotion that nobody saw coming for a 35-year-old shortstop whose broken body looked as if it might not survive the season.
Turns out, Renteria's story is more unbelievable than anyone knew.
