Hope to See Big Z and Jimmy Duke It Out

It didn't take Jim Edmonds long to find himself a new home. Five days, to be exact.

The Chicago Cubs agreed to a contract with the 37-year-old outfielder Wednesday, after he was dumped by the San Diego Padres. He'll have to earn his playing time however, as center fielder Reed Johnson has been doing alright, batting .256 with a homer and 17 RBIs.

Too bad for youngster Felix Pie, who is now headed to the AAA Iowa Cubs to work out his batting kinks after striking out 23 times in 66 at bats and batting only .222.

Heading into his new uni, Edmonds -- an eight-time Gold Glove winner and four-time All-Star -- is batting a shoddy .178 with 1 home run and 6 RBIs on the season.

So, is Carlos Zambrano pissed? Cause, he is so not above punching his own teammates in the face, repeatedly.

Anyway, this move totally confuses me. Does Jim Edmonds have anything left in his old-ass tank? I guess... he is a left-handed hitter. Yay optimism!
