Freel is the best leadoff hitter we got, and should play the majority of the games. He is a great defensive centerfielder, and should also play there most of the time. I agree with you that he does need some rest, but he should play majority of the time.
This guy is great at creating things on the basepaths and scoring runs. He does make mistakes, but who doesn't? He is way better than Deno, and should play over him any day of the week.
Maybe it's just me, but a Freel, FeLo combo is a lot more dangerous than a Deno, FeLo combo, but I have been hearing a lot lately that Deno is more wanted than Freel.
