Happy Birthday Jim Edmonds, who turned 40 on Sunday!
The former Cub is batting .266 with 3 HR & 8 RBI through 44 games with the Brewers this season.
Not bad for a guy who sat out 2009 and made the team as a non-roster free agent out of spring training!
The four-time All Star, and eight-time Gold Glove Award winner, is also approaching a few career milestones…12 walks away from 1,000, 15 homers shy of 400 and 31 games short of 2,000.
Wouldn’t be surprised if Edmonds hangs on for another year. Wouldn’t rule out a return to St. Louis, either.
Still wish the Cubs would’ve brought Edmonds back in ’09. Then again, we never would’ve enjoyed the Milton Bradley era!
