Edmonds' Debut

I didn't get to it in the recaps, but Jim Edmonds made his Cubs debut yesterday, against the Padres of all teams. 1-4 with a strikeout. He stranded seven and Cubs fans booed him, but it didn't matter because the Padres were the Padres and didn't score any runs. Embarrassingly, San Diego intentionally walked Fukudome to get to him in the bottom of the fifth, and it wasn't to set up a double play or anything (there were already two outs). They just knew -- as their release of him implied -- that he can't hit anymore.

It's one of those things that makes me wonder if Cub management is just using some kind of random-number generator to make decisions.

Clearly we're not going to give Pie a proper chance, so are we at least going to trade him?

And on a related note, what does Ronny Cedeno have to do to crack the starting lineup?
