Ryan Freel was happy for a fresh start but still getting his mind around getting traded:
"A piece of me is excited. But I'm upset because of my relationship with the fans in Cincinnati. It's been tough. But you can't look at the past. I'm still playing baseball. But it's kind of an emotional time. I'm torn."
Say what you will about Freel but you can't dispute the fact that the guy played his heart out every night.
