So That's Why They Signed This Guy
I didn't want to do this because I'm sure you predicted that I would after my poo-pooing of his signing, but Jim Edmonds made a hell of a catch last night. So did Jacoby Ellsbury, for that matter.
Or was this classic Edmonds, making a challenging catch look even better by failing to run under the ball? We know Jacoby would have been having a drink, sitting in a lawn chair under this blast to center for a good few seconds.
Either way, it's a great catch from the new Cubbie in the face of that stupid hill in Houston and for a brief, brief second I applauded the man. It'd be nice if he could hit, but I'll take some centerfield gold gloveness if he still has it in him.
