Put Freel at 2B, allow yourself to ride the hot bat, Josh Hamilton, and give your ballclub the best chance to win. That *is* the point of baseball, right?
These Castro starts at SS are just bull, especially when you've got a kid who can play SS like nobody's business.
Afraid of "messing up" Phillips?? Lame.
