After not playing at all in the 2009 season Jim Edmonds has signed a minor league deal with the Milwaukee Brewers. After signing with the San Diego Padres and not having much success hitting a mere .178 (probably due to the fact that the parks outfield is so big).
Some people that he was done as a player, but soon after getting released by the Padres he signed with the Chicago Cubs, and started to show that he wasn't finished and he had some left in the tank hitting 19 home runs with the Cubs, with a .256 batting average.
That being said he is coming very near to the end of his carreer. So the question is, is will he be elected into the baseball hall of fame. Well if you ask me I would say yes, 8 gold gloves, 4 all star apperences, one time silver slugger award. With stellar feilding and a pretty adequate career batting average at .284 I think he should definitely get in. Maybe not first ballot because if Roberto Alomar isn't worhty on the first try I don't know who is. Edmonds also has 382 career home runs; if he makes it to 400 I think it would be pretty hard not to put him into the hall of fame.
I was ecstatic to here that he signed with the Brewers after one year out. I'm also excited to see what he can do with the brewers in his comeback(seeing that he makes the team, seeing that he is a spring training invitee). Let's see if he can improve on what I already think is a hall of fame career.
What do you think is Jim Edmonds should be a Hall of Famer
