So, here in STL, there's a little morning radio show that a lot of the Cardinal players are friendly with. Edmonds more so than others, as in the past, he's shirked his workout duties during Spring Training to sit and talk with these guys. Edmonds is notorious for not working that hard in Spring.
Anyway, he text messages the host of the show yesterday and just says, "Good morning F-Face" and that leads to them getting him on the air today for an interview as he drives to Padres' camp.
He talks about how he misses the Cardinal organization and players, but realizes how much he's missed SoCal and AZ the last 7-8 years.
The hosts asked Jimmy if there's a "butt-ass bunch of radio guys like them" that sit outside the Padres locker room and do a show, begging each player to sit down. He says that there's not anything like that as far as he knows, but wishes there was (in the past, Jim has allowed the radio show to broadcast from his house during opening day).
I think this is a great opportunity for Gaslamp. Sit someone outside of the locker room to report...get in good with Edmonds, he's always looking for a distraction...next thing you know, you'll be doing a live blog from his home.
The good news for you Padres fans is that he said he's in great shape because he went thru some SWAT training in the offseason.
