Re: 2 more years for Freel
Extending Freel is a good deal. It gives the Reds someone who can play the OF or 2b at a moments notice and he is the teams only true leadoff hitter.
He's even the emergency catcher, and if Ross continues to hit at a subpar .100 pace, the emergency may be sooner than later.
Additionally, as I said last year, another good sign is that the Reds have finally got rid of the darn "we won't negotiate contracts in season" that was a hallmark of the Uncle Carl era.
