Guy Edmonds - 2013-14 Sydney Blue Sox

I will flat out admit it, I don't like Edmonds. Most ABL players seem reasonably friendly, and there are very few reasons to dislike them. However, the several times I've seen him play, he's come across as somebody who appears to have anger management issues, and to put it bluntly, has acted as a "bit of a jerk" on the field (mouthing off to other players, smashing and hitting things, etc)  Having said that, I may have just been unlucky and seen him playing on a couple of bad days - hopefully he's a really nice guy (pun not really intended) normally.

Still, he deserves a card as an ABL player. Edmonds is a Sydney born player who made his ABL debut in 2013-14 with the Sydney Blue Sox, having rebuffed the Blue Sox's attempts to sign him the previous two ABL seasons. He spent three seasons playing in the minors for the Texas Rangers between 2010 and 2012, reaching the low A level Spokane Indians in 2012.
