    At least he wasn't driving (do I hear an echo?)

    Although I agree this does indicate he has a problem.

    Guess that big apology doesn't mean much now.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Good thing he wasn't on probation for the Kentucky incident.

    I'm not too concerned about this, based on what I've heard thus far. Hopefully he's already gotten a phone call from "Captain" Jason.

    Re: Freel arrested again

    Had a fellow tell me several years ago that it doesn't matter how much you drink it's what happens while you're drinking that is the problem. A person may not drink 364 days of the year but if they drink on that 365th day and something happens because of it, they have a drinking problem. IMO, Ryan Freel has a drinking problem. This is at least the 2nd time he's been in trouble because of drinking. He either needs to go into rehab or the Reds should suspend him without pay. That might sober up his ass in a hurry.

    Of course this may make the Aurilia signing an even higher priority than it was before.

    I believe he's married and has recently become a father. This guy has a real problem.

    I personally dont think you trade someone bc they were drunk outside a bar (or whatever this case was), unless he is truly doing something bad. He needs to seek help and get better. He's no Ray Lewis....

    If it was doomestic violence my personal opinion is that you simply drop the guy...No second chance in my book on that sort of nonsense.

    Because he is a drunk he needs help but the help he needs will only work when he wants it...it's on him..I'd trade him and move on.

    Re: Freel arrested again

    I would trade him if you can get a good return, if not, keep him and make sure he works on his problem. The Reds should have made him go to rehab before. There is simply no excuse to drink and drive. With all the money he has, he could pay someone to drive him around. As far as the disordererly conduct, that is just plain stupid. What is a 29 year old millionaire doing out running the streets of Tampa, in the middle of the night? He should be arrested for stupidity.

    Exactly.

    I've seen this behavior before and it always ends in tragedy. It might be best that we get what we can for him and move on. The first time should have been a lesson. It apparently wasn't and that's a very bad sign.

    Re: Freel arrested again

    Wow, aside from being cut and/or sent forcibly into rehab is there anything else the guy needs? A shock collar? Chemical castration?

    Get a rope , all kidding aside Ryan needs to look for some help before situations such as this end in a tragedy.

    Re: Freel arrested again

    Seems like we ought to find out some details before we string him up.

    It may be as bad as the worst case scenario people are worrying about, it may not.

    Of course, you are right, but in my experience, the first drinking violation which results in a fine, threat of job, or embarrassment usually see an end to that behavior unless there is a real problem. I hope I'm wrong.

    Also, usually PI tickets are not given if you have sober friends who will transport you home or you act politely. Apparently, Ryan did something stupid in his drunken state (like swing at an officer?--or ran his mouth like Kurt Busch?--"Do you know who I am?") which caused the ticket to be written.

    Yes, I agree. People are going off the deep end here throwing out situations and that's how rumors get started. All we know on this is one newspaper article. I would hope by tomorrow we could get a full report of what happened and hopefully some quotes from Freel and the Reds management. That being said I think he should have to undergo some mandatory rehab. As Creek said, twice is a trend. Hopefully he can sort things out and start being more responsible. I think everyone enjoys a few drinks but obviously Ryan is not running with the right crowd. I go out with friends and the one thing I know is that my friends will be there to keep me out of trouble no matter what happens. Ryan obviously didn't have anyone with him to pull him away when he started getting rowdy.


    Edit: Wow WVRedsFan, our posts are almost identical.

    Sounds like Ryan had a few(ok several) brews and then decided to make his presence felt out in the public.
