If Jim Edmonds has lost his enthusiasm for playing baseball, he sure has a funny way of showing it.
Jimmy Ballgame was 2-for-4 with FIVE runners batted in Tuesday in the Brewers' game against Cleveland, a 10-2 Milwaukee win.
The Brew Crew has been giving Edmonds a healthy dose of playing time over the last few days, likely to see if he can hold up to the rigors of playing a whole season at age 39 (he'll be 40 in June) after taking 2009 off... And he seems to be up to the challenge.
I'm hoping Edmonds decides he misses his family too much and retires once and for all instead of being a thorn in the Cardinals' side in 2010.
