Edmonds 'leaning toward' retirement

Jim Edmonds Jim Edmonds said Monday that he expects his 17th season will be his last, according to's Adam McCalvy .

"I'm leaning toward shutting it down and being a family man again," Edmonds said. "I've made my mark. I've done as much as I can do as an everyday player."

Edmonds was traded by the Brewers to Cincinnati on Aug. 9 for outfielder Chris Dickerson, but has been on the disabled list since Aug. 24 with a strained right oblique. Although McCalvy writes Edmonds will likely retire at the end of the season, he also says Edmonds had considered retiring earlier this season and it's uncertain if he'll be able to return this season.

Edmonds, 40, is hitting .272 with nine homers and 21 RBI this season, but has hit just .136/.208/.364 in nine games with the Reds. He has a home run and an RBI.

The Reds had hoped he'd add some pop off the bench from the left side, but he hasn't done much of that in his short tenure in Cincinnati.

Dickerson, also left-handed, has hit .303/.351/.394 in 14 games with the Brewers, knocking in five runs without the benefit of a home run. He's also stolen a base.

Good for Chris. He couldn't do anything for the Reds so I'm glad that maybe he's caught on somewhere else. Sometimes you just need a change of venue. Dickerson's best work while with the Reds was always done in the minors. We would bring him up and he'd stink up the joint. I think Edmonds may have shut it down already this season. He may not even like the Reds. There were rumors that when they got into that fight with the Cards he was pushing and shoving his own teammates. Just a rumor but thats what this page is all about.
