Watch sportscenter tonight. One of his more memorable catches tonight. Over the shoulder on the "hill" in CF in Houston to rob Hunter Pence of at least a triple.

I have no respect for players that play for both teams in a rivalry.

Cubs and Cardinals, would be my guess.

You would find fault with a lot of players ever since the days of free agency then NS.

It's hard to hold something against a guy who just wants to find the best opportunity and make the most out of his career.

Whether Edmonds is a showboat on the field or not.

Brandon Phillips?

Or how about Eric Davis, who played for the Reds and Dodgers? Granted he was traded to the Dodgers, but he later signed with the Reds again.

Maybe Francisco Cordero for going to play for a rival team in the same division. Or guys who may have played for both the Braves and Reds sometime around the early to mid 90's. Or Reds and Astros.

Another former Red, poor Mike Morgan, he probably played for every single team's rival, some more than once.

I'm not saying that just to try to make fun of you NarrowStairs, but I must say I don't understand the mindset at all. Players move around all the time, because they're traded, released, or are free agents.

Anybody who hates Jim Edmonds hates him because he has handed the Reds their ace for so long. He plays baseball the right way.

He's nothing but a showboat and steroid user.

I'm just surprised that Jocketty didn't run out and sign him to a contract the day after he was released.

If I had my choice of Mendoza-line hitting CF-ers, I'd still take Edmonds over CF Patterson.

PEACE

Exactly right. Jim Edmonds is the Anti-Red.

Albert Pujols plays for the Cards, and I would trade my mother away for him to be on the Reds. I couldn't care less what uniform any Reds player wore before he played for the Reds, as long as he suits up and helps the team win I will fully support him everyday of the week.

Is that meant to be sarcastic? Edmonds has flopped and rolled on routine catches for the last 10 years. He overly celebrates when he does something remotely good. And of course, there's the George Grande man love factor.

Jeff Weaver thinks he can still play too

No, it wasn't meant to be sarcastic. I hate the Cards just as much as the next guy, and I hated Edmonds in CF because he wasn't our CF. Ryan Freel is a flopper and a roller, not Edmonds. I agree that George Grande's man crush is a bit over the top.
