Some pregame stuff to consider:

--Here's the explanation on why Ryan Freel has made so little progress. "I felt another pop," he said. "The MRI showed it tore completely off the bone." Freel's tear of the right hamstring was called "partial" when it occurred on June 4. The pop Freel felt met the tear was complete. He still hasn't begun to run. But he said surgery has not been discussed. He's confident he'll return this year. "Absolutely," he said. "I feel pretty good now. I think I'll be able to do things pretty quick now."

--I'm told that three scouts were here last night specifically to look at David Weathers. I still think Weathers and Jeremy Affeldt will attrach as much trade talk as anyone on the Reds. Clubs are always looking to upgrade their bullpens. Both Weathers and Affeldt are free agents after the season, making them easy to trade.

I wonder if Weathers will net a supplemental pick if he's offered arbitration?

Weathers needs to be dealt due to his age but I want to hang on to Affeldt.

I doubt Weathers makes it that far.He will most likely be traded.

Yeah, but that effects the asking price.

George Grande said he saw Freel running today. That's always a good sign.
