As I was perusing Tim Dierkes' list of players who are still free agents, one name jumped out at me - Jim Edmonds.
With Brett Gardner proving day-in and day-out that he is not able to hit major league pitching, and Melky Cabrera having proved as such over the entire 2008 season, how long will it be before the Yankees kick the tires on Edmonds?
The Yankees centerfield tandem has combined to go 7-30 (.233) with one extra base hit so far this season. Edmonds, though advanced in age, still provides solid defense and above average pop, as he proved by hitting 19 home runs in just 298 at bats for the Cubs last year. Maybe he isn't the ideal move, but eventually Brett Gardner's act will get old.
