You Are Cleared to Resume Hating Jim Edmonds

MLB News and Rumors

Remember when Jim Edmonds was a star for the St. Louis Cardinals?

Grr. We hated that guy. He was so … douchey. And so … cocky. When Carlos Zambrano threw at him – twice – Edmonds totally deserved it. Grr. We hated that guy.

But then, after being cast off by the San Diego Padres, the Cubs signed Edmonds to a low risk, low money deal. Then, to everyone’s surprise, he actually produced. And it really stuck in Cardinals fans’ craws.


Hooray! We loved that guy!

Still, it felt … wrong. We’re a fickle sort, sure, but such instantaneous love for a guy we’d been trained for so long to hate was difficult to process.

Well I have good news, fellow Cubs fans: Jim Edmonds is making a comeback with the almost-equally-hated Milwaukee Brewers. Grr! We hate that guy!

Edmonds, 40, signed a minor league deal with the Brewers yesterday, who will have until late March to either place him on the Major League roster (and pay him $850k), or release him. At which time we can make a decision, again, as to whether he’s a good guy or a megadouche.
