Try to trade Edmonds?

Postby Pogotheostrich » Thu Sep 25, 2003 1:14 pm

There has been some talk here in STL the last week or two about trying to trade Jim Edmonds for a pitcher/free up salary. This doesn't make any sense to me. He is the cleanup hitter, plays gold glove defense in center and makes $8.3 mil. $5.3 mil is going away when Vina leaves town. If Edmonds gets traded then J.D. "I hurt myself walking into the dugout" Drew is in center for 1 year until Boras auctions him to the highest bidder. I just don't see this helping the Cards.

i don't live in StL, but i agree. edmonds (outside of pujols) is their star player. rolen is close behind. edmonds is one of the best all-around players in the game.

oh well, hope he goes to the mets :-D

Depends on the return, of course, but in the Cards' situation (and with this year's free agency scenario), they'd have to have a fantastic deal in mind for this to make sense...
