Wanna buy Jim Edmonds’ house?

Apr 8, 2013, 1:31 PM EDT

Jim Edmonds' house

Jim Edmonds is now doing Cardinals pregame/postgame for Fox Sports Midwest, so I guess he’s spending less time in Orange County than he used to. If you have the means, you may want to consider buying his home in Irvine. Only $8 million. And best part: BOWLING ALLEY!

So what does Jim Edmonds’ Santa Barbara-style manse have to offer? Oh, just your usual hodge-podge of opulence ranging from a state of the art theater to a custom wine cellar to a gym with a sauna, and those are just the interior goods. Outside, the longtime ballplayer’s nearly one-acre spread rocks a pool area complete with an outdoor cabana and fireplace, along with a detached casita.

There really is a bowling alley. Click through and there’s a pic and everything.

It’s 10,000 square feet. So if you want to cover it all, you’ll need Edmonds’ range.

    Alas, the bowling alley is actually in former New York Jets receiver Laveranues Coles’ FL home, not Edmond’s home.

      I ain’t paying 8mil for a house with no bowling alley.
      Only a animal would live without a bowling alley.

    “Roy: What about a gross of fluorescent condoms for the the novelty machine in the men’s room? I mean, those are fun even when you’re alone.
    Lancaster Bowl Manager: Yeah.
    Roy: You get it?
    Lancaster Bowl Manager: [impatiently, trying to read his Asian Brides magazine] Yeah!
    Roy: This is like the hula hoop of the nineties. People go nuts!
    Lancaster Bowl Manager: No! Look, we don’t even have a novelty machine in the men’s room anymore.
    Roy: And you call this a bowling alley?”

    Now, in order to get into the house, do we have to take a horrible route to the door and then dive through successfully at the last second, wowing our neighbors unnecessarily?

      Hahaha! That’s some funny stuff Penquin.
      Qualification:
      As an incredibly biased St. Louis Cardinals fan…I have never been on the horrible route/unneccesary diving bandwagon.
      That said…your post still made me laugh out loud.
      Good work!

    The Dude: Fuckin’ Quintana … that creep can roll, man.
    Walter Sobchak: Yeah, but he’s a pervert, Dude.
    The Dude: Yeah.
    Walter Sobchak: No, he’s a sex offender. With a record. He served 6 months in Chino for exposing himself to an eight year old.
    The Dude: Oh!
    Walter Sobchak: When he moved to Hollywood he had to go door to door to tell everyone he was a pederast.
    Donny: What’s a … pederast, Walter?
    Walter Sobchak: Shut the fuck up, Donny.
    Jesus Quintana: You ready to be fucked, man? I see you rolled your way into the semis. Dios mio, man. Liam and me, we’re gonna fuck you up.
    The Dude: Yeah, well, you know, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.
    Jesus Quintana: Let me tell you something, pendejo. You pull any of your crazy shit with us, you flash a piece out on the lanes, I’ll take it away from you, stick it up your ass and pull the fucking trigger ’til it goes “click”.
    The Dude: Jesus.
    Jesus Quintana: You said it, man. Nobody fucks with the Jesus.
    Walter Sobchak: Eight-year-olds, Dude.

    Range? You realize it just looked like he had range because he dove for everything, right?

    the only thing i don’t like about the house is the front

    Shady Canyon is home to many sports players. Surprised he would leave.

    This is the least offensively decorated of all of the former ball players homes Craig has posted. I kinda like this one.

    I heard that Terry Francona got lost three times in this house looking for the bowling alley!

      Did someone in a golf cart pick him up in the solarium and give him a lift to the lanes?
