The Reds have traded Chris Dickerson to the Brewers for Jim Edmonds. If this was the year 2001, I would be happy with this. In 2010, not so much.
According to ESPN:
The trade was first reported by ESPN’s Eduardo Perez, who received a text message from Edmonds saying that he had been traded.
The Reds host one of Edmonds’ former teams, the St. Louis Cardinals, in a key three-game series starting Monday night (ESPN, 7 ET). The Reds led the Cardinals by two games in the NL Central entering Monday’s games.
The veteran outfielder was batting .286 with 6 home runs and 20 RBIs in 73 games entering Monday’s games. In 17 seasons with the Angels, Cardinals, Padres, Cubs and Brewers he has a .285 career batting average with 1,245 runs scored, 1,943 hits, 390 home runs and 1,196 RBIs.
Dickerson has played in 20 games for the Reds this season. He has been on the 60-day disabled list since April 30 to rehab from surgery on his right hand and wrist.
A simple Reds fan from a simple town. I have been a Reds fan all my life. The 1990 team was crowned Champions during my prime youth years and I grew up idolizing Chris Sabo all the way down to the flat top hair style and the #17. I have passed that love of the Reds down to my three boys who love the game and the Reds just as much as I do! Follow me on twitter @CoachWilson17
