Edmonds career over?


08:00 AM ET 09.22 | He may not be in the lineup for his team's final games in 2010. It's quite possible that Jim Edmonds' season and career ended on a high note and low note at the same time. Edmonds hit a second-inning home run to right field for the Reds off Brewers starter Dave Bush, but he hobbled as he rounded second base and had to exit the game. After Cincinnati's 4-3 victory, Edmonds said he believed he might have torn the right Achilles tendon that has bothered him much of this season. Nothing has been confirmed, however, until Edmonds sees a doctor and has tests.

I Love Jimmy Ballgame, but didn't they have nearly an identical T&R about two weeks ago?

My all-time favorite baseball player/Cardinal. I wish him all the best and hope to see him handing around St. Louis and the Cardinals like he did during his year off last year! Love ya Jimmy Ballgame!

Time to fold it up Jim.....get a gig in the MLB network or something

You had a nice career....when you were an Angel.

yes he did.

September 22, 2010  12:02 PM ET

did edmonds wind up at first base? wow. that is a shock.

September 22, 2010  12:27 PM ET

Always have respected this guy. He did his job, and did it well. And never heard a negative thing about him.

September 22, 2010  12:50 PM ET

Time to call it quits.

September 22, 2010  01:01 PM ET

yes he did.

Are you saying it was only while he was an Angel? You needs to check your facts, son. While in Cal, he only had 1 season with a .900+ OPS. Traded to StL and cracks off 7 straight. Think before you speak next time.

*Need, not needs. Boy, that typo made my whole argument sound stupid. Proof read before you hit "Submit"...

September 22, 2010  01:07 PM ET

...And it was only 6 straight. Damn it...

September 22, 2010  01:51 PM ET

...And it was only 6 straight. Damn it...

You looked like a fool after #1...let it go.

September 22, 2010  03:31 PM ET

You had a nice career....time to walk away.

That'll be hard if he has a torn Achilles

i went to game in STL... i'm not from there... three game series against Chicago... Cubs had Sammy Sosa on first... and Moises Alou up... or some big star... the batter hit a flyball to centerfield that was over Edmond's head... but Edmonds faked Sosa out of his jock, by faking a catch.... was a great play, because Sosa only got to second.... he thought Edmonds had caught the ball....I liked jim edmonds...

Best player the Angels have ever had.

September 22, 2010  05:45 PM ET

uh... the Angels have had Reggie, Rod Carew, Eddie Murray, Fred Lynn, I think they've even had Dave Winfield.... other giant was Dave Parker. They have had players that were better than Edmonds...Gary Pettis was defensively better....but... I can't think of any white players who were better... Darin Erstad was an equal defensively... but real streaky in hitting. Another player worth mentioning is Chili Davis... great clutch hitter... but not as good defensively.
