Obviously, Bruce was a choice and was not taken. I know Zimmerman was available as was Tulowitszki. There was another name or 2, but I can't recall.
They also said that Ryan Freel was a great baserunner, so I'd take their opinions with a grain of salt anyway
Awesome week for Bruce though. Baseball shouldn't be as easy as he's made it look to be.
