I have to admit the idea does intrigue me. He did do well in the limited time he was with the Cubs. He faltered in the playoffs but if he can play near that leavel I would not mind seeing him with the Sox. He is aged and could be injury prone but we would still have BA as a back up. What do you think?

The dude has no knees left.

I'm utterly shocked as to how much he gave the Cubs last year, but I think he gave an extra effort and ignored some of the pain just to stick it to the Cardinals.

Slow? Check.
Old? Check.
All or nothing hitter? Check.
This tread sucks? Check.

I recall links to stories that he turned down the option to play for the Sox before the start of the 2008 season. Kenny was interested and made an offer to St. Louis and Edmonds said no.

don't you guys want to see him play shallow and then have to do an amazing dive!

Fantastic idea! Kenny's trying to get younger, this would make SO much sense!

This would not be the "veteran" route I want the Sox going to.

But a move like this would fit the mold, sadly.

How?

Old, slow, station-to-station, that kind of thing.

Also grinder, grit, and he knows how to win. Hits .260 and has lots of stubble? Get that man a contract!

If we sign Edmonds, he'd perform about as bad as these guys....

If he wishes to be a back-up to our back-up, I will have no problem with him signing with the Sox.
