I have Edmunds and had picked him up in the middle of his hot streak... However, it would seem now I have a player who could drop out of the fold and get as many at bats when he comes back.

He will still hit but if he is only getting half of his at bats every week, this could be good enough reason to drop him and pickup and everyday player such as Andre Ethier, whom is still available.

I am waiting until Sunday evening before I make a move for next weeks head to head matchup.

It doesn't sound promising for Edmonds.

I dropped him for a red-hot David Delucci.

I see Edmonds is once again out of the lineup for todays game.. This is getting silly.. I will not start his butt for a while. This post concussion thing must be brutal.. For the last 2 days they have sounded like they would start him because he was said to be doing much better must have relapsed!.. He's done in my book as he absolutely killed me this week being out..

He still didn't look right, but it doesn't seem like they are going to put him on the DL.

I am in a tight hunt for a playoff spot - I will see how he plays tomorrow before I consider dropping him - if he can at least get a few at bats, maybe I will risk it........ :-o

CHICAGO -- Jim Edmonds returned to the field on Saturday, but that doesn't mean he's ready to get back in the Cardinals' starting lineup.

Edmonds walked as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning of St. Louis' 5-4 loss to Chicago, then came around to score on Ronnie Belliard's double. He stayed in to play center field for the ninth and 10th, singling in his second plate appearance.

"He could hit," said manager Tony La Russa. "And then after he ran the bases, I asked whether he could play defense -- otherwise we would have gone a different way. And he said he could play defense. So we'll see tomorrow."

Edmonds acknowledged, however, that his vision still isn't completely clear as he battles a case of post-concussion syndrome. Playing the outfield was something of a challenge, as was picking up Belliard's ball in the outfield as he ran the bases.

"I would have liked to have been further around the bases when the ball hit the ground," he said. "But things weren't super-clear, as I would like it to be, when I was running. I was just trying to be sure. I think that's an easier read for somebody who's been out there more than once in the last week."

It took a creative slide for Edmonds to avoid catcher Henry Blanco's tag, but he managed to do so. More critically, he managed not to collide with Blanco.

"Running, I was more worried about blowing out a hamstring," Edmonds said. "I came around third and saw there was going to be a play at the plate, and I was thinking of everything I could do not to run into the catcher.

"I thought if I bang into the catcher right here, this could be it for the season."

Edmonds said before the game Saturday that he was still gradually improving. Still, it's clear that he's not at 100 percent. As long as the Cardinals have other options in center field, it's likely that Edmonds won't return to starting duty just yet.

I mean playing baseball you need good eyesight! WTF is he doing when he's saying it was difficult picking up the ball. Man you wouldn't find me in the batters box if I can't see the ball! <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif>
