He was striking out at a rate of 35% in 2019, and a rate of 22% in 2018 and 24% in 2017. You have to think the Nationals were telling him to go for the HR in every PA. I think he’ll have a job in 2020.November 2, 2019 at 3:19 pm #113514

I have always thought Adams would be real good out here with the Rockies. I mentioned that to Jeff Bridich at a SABR event one time, but he sort of downplayed it and did not seem to be of a similar opinion.November 3, 2019 at 11:06 am #113573November 7, 2019 at 2:00 pm #113922November 7, 2019 at 4:35 pm #113934November 8, 2019 at 11:54 am #113992

Am I late to the show (again) or has there not been any posts about Jimmy Ballgame and his marital situation? It appears to be a pretty ugly situation. Is Edmonds still a paid Cardinal coach of some sort? I did not see him in the photo of all the uniformed Cards coaches posted by Brian. Usually when something comes up that involves an athlete or former athlete his organization divorces all memory of him. Strange to not have heard anything of this nature from the Cards. Inquiring minds would like to know – any news?November 9, 2019 at 11:41 am #114042
Why would the Cardinals organization react to Edmonds’ marital problems? There are no legal issues, as far as I know, so why would an ugly divorce affect his employment?
As far as I know, he is still a special instructor who helps the team out when he can. He has been employed by FOX Sports Midwest as a game analyst, as well.
If that changes in 2020 is still anyone’s guess.

Well he is a paid member of the Cardinals organization and MLB teams seem to comment when any of their employees are involved with something that could affect the image of the ball club. Usually it is the media that won’t let a subject die but in the case of the Cardinals, the PD media seems to think they would suffer if they asked some questions. But, also, some of the charges being mentioned in the Edmonds case go beyond simple marital problems. I would be willing to bet that Edmonds is no longer on the Cardinals staff come Spring Training. FS Midwest – yes, still there because their options are slim as he is the best they have to offer. I don’t support the Cards dumping him as an instructor but just feel that they will do it to ‘protect the image.’November 9, 2019 at 12:50 pm #114052
You and I see this differently.
As far as the PD or anyone else asking questions, what right do we have to snoop in the personal matters of an individual when it has nothing to with their job? Any idea how many players, front office officials and media members go through divorces?
Edmonds’ choice of a spouse was a reality TV star, so they have to expect to live their lives in the tabloids. But again, no laws have been broken, it appears. No one has been arrested or charged with a crime.
We will see what happens in the spring, but since this is happening in the real time, decisions probably haven’t been made. But other team employees who had problems that included court cases were not cut loose because of it, so I see no reason Edmonds would be the exception.
Personally, I hope that no one loses their job as a result. It sounds like enough people will be hurt, as it is.November 12, 2019 at 4:41 pm #114192November 12, 2019 at 9:30 pm #114226

La Russa and Madden – two of the biggest non player egos in baseball. What could go wrong?
