Jim Edmonds creates Sportscenter top 10 nominee right out of the Padres

Looks like Padres center fielder and web gem extraordinaire Jim Edmonds is out of the Padres and the Cubs are looking onto adding him (which would firmly plant Matt Murton out of a job by the way). That Cubs organization sure makes some weird moves, demoting Rich Hill, Matt Murton… although signing Edmonds would be justified because Felix Pie does look very overmatched against Major League pitching. It is an ongoing trend in baseball where old veterans like Frank Thomas who are slumping are getting cut, in favor of younger players. It seems there is a surplus of veterans who think they can still play baseball, and sure enough, their agents get some of these players jobs. Now most of these players cannot anymore due to the influx of young talent coming in. I am, of course, being very vague here, but it sure is a phenomenon to watch here. For example, Omar Vizquel better watch his ass if he ends up hitting .172 by the end of June.

Honestly, I am quite surprised that the San Francisco Giants didn’t sign every old player who is still a free agent.
