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.
