Cubs Sign Edmonds

5:33pm: He’s a Cub, pending a physical.

3:38pm: Sounds like Edmonds will become a Cub after tonight’s game and may debut tomorrow.

WEDNESDAY, 11:11am: Edmonds has moved from appearing poised to "about to" sign with the Cubs.  Cubs fans don’t seem to like the move, but it doesn’t seem like anything to get worked up about.

TUESDAY: Gordon Wittenmeyer of the Chicago Sun-Times says the Cubs "appear poised to sign Edmonds after he clears waivers Wednesday."

MONDAY: According to Dave van Dyck of the Chicago Tribune, the Cubs are "exploring the possibility" of signing center fielder Jim Edmonds.  This was first reported by Bruce Levine of ESPN Radio 1000 yesterday evening.

Edmonds, 37, was let go after hitting .178/.265/.233 in 103 plate appearances.  It’s hard to say whether Edmonds has anything left.  He did hit relatively well in the last two months of 2007.  Van Dyck says Edmonds would replace Felix Pie on the Cubs’ roster.
