Edmonds would like to play more than two days a week...

OK, now we're getting a better feel about Jim Edmonds' decision to return to the ball, bat, glove and "cleats" action ahead this year, thanks to

Being someone who has followed baseball since the days of Borchert Field, I must admit I like to see "old farts" get another chance. The interview (available in the link above) sends a message that Edmonds wants to be on the field more than two days a week. Well, I certainly hope so. Edmonds seems to be capable of filling the Gabe Kapler role of a couple of years ago. (Most here probably think Kapler was under-utilized during his stint in Milwaukee.)

If Braun, Gomez, and Hart are the regulars and Edmonds can play any outfield position, then both Hart (who is still figuring out if he can see) and Gomez (who is still figuring out how his talents fit the game) should have plenty of opportunities to watch the game while Edmonds shows them both how it's done. And Braun? Sit him in interleague games requiring a DH and put Edmonds in left.

Bottom line? Keep Edmonds and keep him busy. And on his off days? Let him instruct the other three on how to play outfield. Money well spent!
