Why? I don't disagree I just want reasons cause why I don't have strong feelings either way I think Edmonds is one of the most interesting and entertaining players I have seen. Is the the blank stare? The frosted tips? Diving for routine fly balls? Taking 2 minutes to get up after a dive?
A little of all of that, I suppose. I know that it's an irrational dislike for the guy, and I'm sure my reasons aren't good ones, but the very essence of his being disgusts me. I think if I had to pin-point one single thing as being what bothers me most, it would be the way--when he hits a homerun--he very subtly pauses and watches the ball for just a brief second while maintaining the follow through from his backswing before starting around the bases. That bothers me far more than any of the elaborate or obvious spectacles that other guys do when they hit them.
