Let's say that Holliday gets traded this offseason, as many expect to happen, what's your thoughts on the Rockies signing Jim Edmonds to a one or two year deal. I know he's injury prone, and clearly on the downswing of his career, but they wouldn't need him to play everyday.
The guy has absolutely crushed the ball here throughout his career. My calculations for his career Coors field numbers, in 120 plate appearances: .316/.425/.724. That's an OPS of 1.149.
I've got to imagine that he could be had for less than $5 million/year. His wheels most likely aren't good enough to man center at Coors, but I think he'd do fine in left. A platoon with Spillborghs, Fowler, Smith and Edmonds could be pretty effective between LF and CF. I guess the downside would be one more left-handed bat to factor into the mix.
