True, but one dumb move can't be used to justify another.
4.5 million for a 4th OF is foolish. The jury is still out on whether Freel is only a 4th OF, but that's how I see him. Thus, I dislike this move. Too much risk.
Has anyone figured out if Freel would've been eligible for FA after this year? I don't think he would've been.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
