True. But you get your best assessment of an automobile driving it, not sitting on the showroom floor. Having Freel sitting on the bench may send the signal that he still is not right (in the head).
I personally would love to keep Freel on my bench as a super-sub. Our bench is simpy putrid. But I have no problem with them dangling him out there if we can get something in return. Give it a try.
I think it was the other night, during the Mets game, where it was stated that Met's Mgr Randolph brags up Freel's hustle and all-out effort among his players.
