    Freel signed to a two year extension

    According to the team press notes Freel and the Reds have agreed to a contract extension through 2009. No word on dollar amounts yet.

    Didn't he just sign one last season? Not that I'm complaining much, hopefully it's a good deal and makes him more trade able if it comes to that.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I wonder if he'll show up with dirt and grass stains on his shirt.

    That was my initial thought. It's now a known cost until 2009. Other teams love that.

    I really hope this makes Freel easier to move now. For 2008, you're looking at OF candidates of Dunn/Hamilton/Denorfia/Bruce and IIRC last year of Griffey's contract? That makes Freel the 6th man, unless he's content with being the super-sub, which I can't imagine he will.

    Considering the Reds current depth in the upper minors this isn't bad move if the money is fair.

    As long as he doesn't block Bruce, Hamilton, whomever when they are ready, sounds fine as long as the dollars are not crazy.

    This has to signal a return to the role of super sub does it not? In coming seasons that is.
