    New Padres outfielder stronger after grueling offseason

    PEORIA, Ariz. -- It was a liberating winter for Jim Edmonds, who for once was entirely devoid of the achy bones, rubbery legs and the common soreness that always seemed to linger far too long into his offseason.

    So how did the 37-year-old Edmonds, the Padres' new center fielder, celebrate his good health? He put his body, one that had been ravaged by injuries in recent years, through the most rigorous training program he could find.

    At the behest of good friend and former St. Louis teammate Skip Schumaker, Edmonds rebuilt his body with the help of a trainer named Jim Moss, who spends his days working for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department SWAT team.
