From the department of wishful thinking

Sep 30, 2010, 5:05 PM EDT

Jon Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Jim Edmonds is “hopeful” that he’ll be able to play in the playoffs.

This seems like a big stretch to me.  While what was thought to have been a torn Achilles tendon turned out to not be all that bad, Edmonds is clearly limited and clearly gimpy. He hasn’t played in nine days, and even then he was just pinch hitting.

I know it must be tempting for Edmonds to end his career — and it is almost certain to end after the season — with a playoff appearance, but I don’t see how the Reds can justify a playoff roster spot for him at this point.

    Man, I can’t even come up with something using ‘grit’ and ‘veteran leadership’ to refute your point.
    Shame if his career is over. He was always fun to watch.
