Cards deal Jim Ed to Padres for a bag of balls

They also sent a lovely $1 million large along to San Diego as well..wtf? The deal has to be approved by MLB since thats a large number with plenty of zeros. H/T to Bruce a lifelong Cards fans for letting me know about this late Friday evening.

The Cards did get a player..if you can call him that..he's 24, plays third and he's still in A-ball..not a good sign. Of course Jim Ed had the shittiest year of his career last year after two rounds of off season surgery, and he's in the last year of a $19 million dollar payday. He's pushing 40 and there is a LOT of ground to cover in PetFood's center field my dear reader...lots and lots of ground. Edmonds is due $19 Million this season and the cheap-ass Padres..well, they are the cheap-ass Padres..nuff said.

Three OF'ers told the cheap-ass Padres to kiss off this week: Milton Bradley, Mikie Cameron and the Japanese outfielder Kosuke Fukudome, who signed with the Chicago Cubs.

If that doesn't clue you in to how cheap the fucking Padres are..nothing will mutha fucka. Bradley has an IQ of a dandelion and would rather play for the Rangers, Cameron has a 25 game drug suspension hanging over his gourd for the start of next year and Kosuke obviously understands the value of the American dollar is in the shitter, so he took the highest offer from an even crappier team.

Ah..baseball, ya gotta love it.
