richtedm wrote:(KSDK) - The St. Louis Cardinals have agreed to a trade that will send center fielder Jim Edmonds to the San Diego Padres, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported Friday night.
The Padres will get Single-A third baseman David Freese and at least $1 million from the Cardinals to help offset Edmonds' $8 million salary, the paper reported.
I think they seriously gave him away. No, they PAID the Padres to take him.
Jim and Doug in the same day. Who knew that would happen?
I'm going to link the two trades... St. Louis sends Doug Weight, Jim Edmonds, $1 million, and a minor leaguer to San Diego and Anaheim for Andy McDonald.
Well, this is effing super. Two of my favorites gone in the same effing day. I'm OK with the Weight thing because the Blues at least got something out of the deal other than a referral to the Rape Crisis Hotline. WTF are the Cards "freeing up money" for? Is there another Kip Wells on the horizon? Ooh, be still my beating heart.
Son of a bitch.
