    He'll get his playing time, but to start the year he will not be starting at any one position, baring a trade between now and Monday.

    ha hoo ha wheeze cough ha ha hoo yow!

    We can only hope WayneK comes to his senses and denys Narron Womack by releasing his sorry butt. If Tony's still on the roster for opening day, Freel will not be starting.
    Tom Shearn... who knew?

    Unless someone gets hurt he won't be getting regular at bats.

    From SI.com's previews:

    Freel, 30, emerged as one of the game's better leadoff hitters in 2005, finishing with a .371 on-base percentage and 36 stolen bases from the one hole. He possesses all the attributes of a thinking leadoff man: He is willing to work the count, and he plays to his strength (speed) while minimizing his weakness (limited pop), hitting twice as many ground balls as fly balls. The 5'10", 180-pound Freel has a prototypical small man's game, regularly ripping his uniform on headfirst slides and sprawling catches. His aggressive style sent him to the disabled list twice last season.

    Although Freel has sometimes carried his freewheeling to excess off the field -- he was fined and had his license suspended after pleading guilty to driving under the influence in April 2005 -- the Reds prize his enthusiasm, so much so that on the morning of the team's first full-squad spring training workout, manager Jerry Narron told his players he was tired of hearing fans say they loved watching Freel play; he wanted the same cloud-of-dust style from everybody.
    How do you start WOMACK?!?!?! And don't tell me its because he's scrappy...

    Freel, who signed a two-year, $3 million extension in December, is a fine building block, a scrappy, multipurpose piece and a face for the franchise.

    Freel is too valuable to start

    Is Freel starting on April 1? Not unless there's a trade, a release, or a natural disaster.

    Is Freel starting on May 1? I'd bet even money that he will be. The only problem is that we don't know where.

    There's just no denying it. Womack is the scrappiest man on the planet.

    I always felt like Freel was a good one to have because he can be plugged in to so many positions. I think he'll get sufficient playing time to warrant a spot on your roster - IMO.
