Red Sox Asked About Jim Edmonds

The Red Sox asked the Brewers about Jim Edmonds, according to MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy. Edmonds isn’t sure that he wants to be traded to a contender, but has received assurances from GM Doug Melvin that the club will present him with potential deals before completing anything.

The 40-year-old is hitting a robust .289/.353/.513 this season with eight homers. Edmonds makes $850K this year and becomes a free agent after the season, so his contract will not be an obstacle for any team. Boston also has interest in other outfielders, including Cody Ross.

Jimmy ballgame would be a good addition to the Padres.

I think this would be a good move, low cost in a trade ,good D ,decent bat, and already accepted a bench role, I like this a whole hell of a lot more than overpaying for someone like Ross, or giving the albatross known as Hermida more playing time

when you it that way, i kind of agree. hermida is been awful since returning from the dl and outfield defense wasnt all that good the last road trip.

Ya after just dogging it on that easy fly ball Wednesday, I kinda gave
up on him, atleast ellsbury should be back next week, he makes that
catch every time, I’m not worried about the outfield as much as the
bullpen and pedroia’s foot

I wouldn’t be surprised if Ellsbury gets moved, either by tomorrow or in the winter. Other clubs have been trying to get him for 2 years and whatever happened between him and the Sox brass over his injury this year might’ve just helped to expediate a move.

He won’t be moved this year, winter though wouldn’t shock me at all, especially if they get a good young catcher or power hitting OF

Edmonds is an awful defender. But would be a good pickup here.

In center now yes, he is 40, but in the corners he’s top notch still,
and he can’t be any worse than hermida or Patterson out there

Edmond’s defense sucks bro. He is servicable in the corners, but don’t play him in center.

Guest

Exactly where he would play here, no 40 year old should play centerlol if Cameron needs a rest ellsbury would move to CF, Edmonds/ hallin LF depending on matchup

You just aren’t going to have both cameron,ellsbury,drew and edmonds in the same roster. Something is going to happen,Cameron might REALLY need to get surgery NOW and is just being a good soldier.

I don’t like the move because I don’t see them going anywhere this year and why in the hell would you want a 41 year old OF next year if he is still signed?!?!!!!

I’d rather watch Nava or McD in LF/CF …..even Kalish.

hes only signed this year, and I think hes perfect cause hes cheap,
and can spell drew cameron and ellsbury, but i hear ya none the less,
you just cant give up with so many games left and the guys they have
commin back IMO, not saying blow up the farm for fielder, dunn etc
just patch a few holes with minor deals and see what happens.

As for cameron God hes been brutal lately, especially tonight watching
a hanging splitter for strike 3, ugh the guy is so obviously injured
though so i’ll give him a break for showing some balls, when alot of
guys would have cashed their checks and called it a season

Cue the Theo’s a genius comments in 3-2-1. By tomorrow Gammons will have an article up about how Edmonds is a good guy in the clubhouse and has already visited 3 firehouses in the Boston area handing out canned goods and lollipops.

Odd…why would he NOT want to be traded to a contender?

Guest

He gets to hit the offseason sooner,if thats the case he is just in it for the paycheck.

This is just me, but I think the Cardinals should deal for Edmonds and dump Winn

Guest

i halfway agree. We should cut Winn.

I agree. The Cards should have signed him this winter. He doesn’t want a starting job and would have been a good mentor to Jay and Rasmus. As a bench player he has been really good and can play the outfield corners and first base, and for $400,000 (if they would have signed him for the minimum – which he wanted), who could beat that?
