What your view of sports and life would be if you had too many concussions
According to sources inside the Cincinnati Reds, veteran outfielder Jim Edmonds intends to retire.
Reds general manager Walt] Jocketty hasn’t talked to Jim Edmonds. “Jay (Bruce) talked him the other day,” Jocketty said. “He’s probably going to retire.”
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. But consider that for five seasons between ages 30 and 34, Edmonds hit .298, 181 home runs, and had a 1.003 OPS. 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.
Jim Edmonds, we hardly knew ye…
