The Jim Edmonds Aging Traveling Outfielder Show has apparently made its last stop.

Edmonds isn’t a Hall of Famer, but if there was a Hall of Pretty Fuckin’ Good, he’d be a lock.  He’ll get enough Hall of Fame votes to stay on the ballot for a while, but at the end of the day, he just doesn’t have the numbers.

It is a bit odd that he had such good years late in his career, but he still hit 40 homers twice, and hit at least 25 10 times. In his prime, he was one of the best center fielders in the game.

    I’m hosting a little live Lakers/Celtics chat over at the Chump if you’re bored today.

      Of, a “Dumb & Dumber” reference will get me to tap the mud out of my spikes and be looking to turn on a fastbal…

      I’m so deliberately staying away from the “s” word because I’m one those guys in the minority who refuses to drink the kool-aid on steroids and their “effect” on baseball.

      My rejection of the PED kool-aid can be seen at
