Freel tends to do this when he is inserted into the lineup every day. He struggles when he starts every day for an extended period of time. People give Ross heck when he struggles at the plate but last night Freel looked absolutly clueless against a left handed pitcher. When you a right handed hitter and you look clueless against a left hander not named santana or randy johnson there is something wrong.
