Jim Edmonds To The Reds, Walt Jocketty Officially Wants Me To Suffer

Okay, now it's personal.

Jim Edmonds, my favorite of the MV3, one of my favorite players ever, has gone to the Reds in exchange for speedy suspect Chris Dickerson.

This is a good move for the Reds in isolation—Edmonds is having a fine year with the bat after spending 2009 in retirement purgatory, and Dickerson isn't getting any more useful in AAA. But after all his ex-Cardinal dumpster-diving Jocketty has finally picked up the one former Redbird I absolutely cannot root against.

Here's to Jim Edmonds hitting the 10 home runs he needs for 400 in the lowest-leverage situations possible and then joining the Cardinals on August 31, when the Reds are looking to shed veterans after having fallen out of the race.
