Mulder – healed / Jimmy – bad wheel / McGwire – lacks appeal

There’s been enough news this week to wake me from my blogging slumber. 

First, we found out that Edmonds is having foot surgery which will likely make him unavailable for spring training.  They except he’ll be good to go for opening day. Please Hammer Toe, don’t hurt him! 

Yesterday Mark McGwire fell well short of the votes he’d need to gain access to the Hall of Fame. This is not really a surprise, and I’m really not sure how I feel about it.  His weasly court testimony is hard to ignore, but it’s also hard to forget the great memories he gave us, particularly during that magical Maris-hunting summer.  It will be interesting to see how future votes go.  Will people forgive and forget? Will a revelation such as "everybody was doing it" change opinions? Would a confession and plea for forgiveness help or hurt?  For what it’s worth, I would have voted for him, but I think my ballot must have gotten lost in the mail. 

Today it was announced that Mark Mulder is a Cardinal again, with a $13 million 2-year deal.  If he’s really healthy, this is good news, but I can’t get too excited about it until I see some evidence.
