Everyone is saying he's played quite well for the Cubs since they acquired him...and he was playing well.

However...

On June 15th Edmonds was hitting .234...which was a big improvement over his .167 average he had just a few weeks prior.
But now it's July 5th, and Edmonds batting average is .233. It's actually a point lower than it was a few weeks ago.
From June 16th to July 5th, he only has 11 hits in 48 at bats...which is a .229 avg. over that span. 6 of those 11 hits have been home runs...so that pumps up his RBI total to 10 over those 48 at bats.

He's not going to keep hitting a home run once every 8 at bats, which he has done since June 15th (but he only has one home run in his last 28 at bats...so he's slowing down already), and that means his RBI's will drop off as well....so without his home runs, he really isn't providing anything at the plate.

I think Edmonds had a nice little stretch after the Cubs acquired him, but now he's starting to come back down to earth.
His average sucks and it's been hovering in the .230's for weeks now, and he has looked pretty bad at the plate in the Cards-Cubs series.

Maybe he'll rebound and turn it up again...but I seriously doubt it. He was pretty bad his last two years here (.250 or so average and a serious decline in HR and RBI, plus he couldn't stay healthy) and he was awful in San Diego to start this season.
I dunno. A couple dozen game stretch playing well for the Cubs isn't going to convince me that he's the old Edmonds again.

I hope he hits .130 for the rest of the season as long as he plays for the shitty Cubs.

I honestly don't see why he's considered a traitor. The Cubs were the only team that gave him a chance after he was cut by the Padres. I know if I was let go by a company, I would try to go work for, I don't know, a similar company that may have been a rival of the place I just worked.

Besides, 5 months with the Cubs will not erase his 8 years with the Cardinals.

Yea I mean what is the guy supposed to do.

"No I won't let you give me another chance at playing in the big leagues just because you're the cubs." :roll: :lol:

First off, Rally's didn't give a shit when you went to work for Wendy's.

Second, no one considers him a traitor, just a cub...... which makes him shit.



And Aode..... you’re a feg too.

Actually, that's not true. I've heard people call him a traitor. My whole point is that, sure he's a Cub and that is indeed shitty, but 5 months with the Cubs will not change my opinion of him ever. It won't take away my adoration for what he did here in St. Louis. It won't taint my opinion of him as one of the greatest Cardinals ever...

Ok, well I have yet to hear anyone I know call him a traitor. I will always love Jimmy Baseball and to me he will always be a Cardinal..... Once he takes off that Cubs uniform.

I'm not happy that I've heard people call him a traitor. Those are dumb fans in my mind. But I agree with your thoughts on #15 wholeheartedly. Couldn't have said it better.

In other news, I was listening to the radio around 4 o'clock today and they reported that only a couple hours earlier, Mr. Gay Jim Edmonds himself got married in Clayton. So I guess he is not Potentially, Questionably Gay Jim any more but rather Married in Clayton, Playing for the Cubs Jim.

I'll always remember him as "2nd best center fielder in the NL" when he was in his heyday.
