Jim Edmonds Signs Minor League Deal With Wrong Beer City -- Milwuakee not St. Louis


The good news for Jim Edmonds? They've got lots of brew up in Milwuakee. The bad news? He may have to switch from Bud Light to Miller Lite.

That's right. If you haven't heard yet, the former Cardinals All-Star (who all but begged Tony La Russa for a spot on this year's roster) agreed yesterday to a minor league deal with the Milwuakee Brewers.

Hey, at least "Jimmy Baseball" got the division right! That means should the 39-year-old be able to prove himself -- and return to baseball after a year of retirement -- we're likely to see a whole lot of him in St. Louis each time the Brewers roll into town. And as always, Jim, the first Bud Light is on Daily RFT.
