Edmonds trade clears path for Rasmus

Russell County High's Colby Rasmus appears to be a clear winner in the trade Friday that sent Jim Edmonds from the St. Louis Cardinals to the San Diego Padres.

Edmonds, a center fielder and an eight-time Gold Glove winner, was signed through next season and was a roadblock to Rasmus, St. Louis' top prospect who spent all of 2007 at Class AA Springfield. Now, Rasmus is the heir apparent.
