It’s official – the Cards have re-signed Jim Edmonds for 2007-08. We don’t know the money yet, but the average annual value is less than $10MM. That’s all I need to know to know that it was a fine signing.
It’s a nice start; Walt Jocketty’s still got plenty of work ahead of him. The focus will be starting pitching; Viva El Birdos votes for Ted Lilly at three years, $25MM. While I worry about Lilly’s shoulder, there’s no doubt he could succeed in the NL under the tutelage of Dave Duncan.
