    Freel Set to Have MRI on Shoulder

    This could be a bad sign! Freel is a spark plug for this team. I hope it's nothing serious, but anytime you mention MRI it's a reason for concern.

    He can't play everyday. This is just another example of it.


    That being said I hope he is ok. If he goes on the DL does Deno or Olmedo come up?

    The next day it hurt bad to rotate my arm," said Freel, who started in center field for Ken Griffey Jr. on Sunday. "Then, the next day it felt really good. Then yesterday, it was pretty sore. Today was worse than yesterday."
    Why did he play 3 days in a row if he had a hurt shoulder?

    Well... I guess it helps when you have solid replacements like Aurilia, Castro, and Encarnacion...

    Freel is a replacement, not Edwin.

    I do hope Freel is alright.

    Arrogent macho pride. This has become all to common of occurance on this team. I don't think they should fire up the MRI machine at the first sniffle, but how many guys have we heard of in the past two years alone that were playing hurt and only made it worse for themselves and the team?
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Freel can't play everyday because he plays with high energy and gives 110%. He gets hurt because he dives, runs into walls, and plays without concern for his personal safety. I'll take that over the guy that won't get his uniform dirty but can play 160 games a year.

    I never said him playing like he does is a bad thing. He just can't play everyday.

    Go back to when he played everyday when Junior was out and look how his numbers bombed.

    He is probably the best utility player in the game, and is one of the better assests to our team.

    I think it's more competitiveness and having no desire to sit on the bench or at home doing nothing when the rest of your teammates are out there playing than it is "arrogant macho pride". Even though most of my attention is on the Reds, like everyone else here, I don't think it's isolated to this team either. I can't think of too many occurrences, if any, where an athlete on any team in any sport realized or suspected they were hurt and said "I'd better shurt it down for a while." I would say probably 99.99999% of any athletes who have any competitive fire at all try to play through injuries up to the point where they know they can't go anymore, or many times up until the point where the manager/coach/gm says "no more".
