MLBTR, ESPN 1000, and Chicago Tribune confirm Cubs like Edmonds.

You heard this first a couple of day ago here on "Hot Stove Cubbies", the Cubs are exploring the option of bring in Edmonds.

Here is the tidbit on MLBTR-

According to Dave van Dyck of the Chicago Tribune, the Cubs are "exploring the possibility" of signing center fielder Jim Edmonds. This was first reported by Bruce Levine of ESPN Radio 1000 yesterday evening.
Edmonds, 37, was let go after hitting .178/.265/.233 in 103 plate appearances. It's hard to say whether Edmonds has anything left. He did hit relatively well in the last two months of 2007. Van Dyck says Edmonds would replace Felix Pie on the Cubs' roster.

I don't mind sending Pie down he needs to get some ar bats. But Edmonds is not the answer. Trade for Willits and let him leadoff.

I'm with Nick, we don't need a "maybe" in the line up right now.
Edmonds isn't the answer. He could get hot down the stretch and in the playoffs. speaking of answer, today is anniversary of Stan Musial's 3000th hit which Harry Caray called as Cardinals announcer, who was the cubs pitcher who gave up that hit? Jimbo

Yeah it seems likely that a deal will get done today. The only question right now is: Will Edmonds be in uniform tonight?
