I think most of us would probably be willing to trade freel for pitching help -- I also think that most of us agree that freel wouldn't get that much in return, so why not keep him.
But are we wrong?
On the sonsofsamhorn.com messageboard several of their posters have suggested the bosox forget about giving up the farm for Crisp and go for Freel instead. One poster even suggested a Manny DelCarmen + Abe Alverez for Freel swap.
Isn't a trade like this a no brainer? To get two, pretty highly touted live arms for freel don't you do that deal every day of the week and twice on sundays?
Is freel the peice we should move instead of Kearns?
