    Freel Close to Being Gone?

    The reason for the lack of cuts? It could be because the Reds are trying to move Ryan Freel. I've heard calls have gone out to Philadelphia, Minnesota and others.

    I wonder who we are looking at from Philly, Minnesota, and "others".

    I wish calls were coming in rather than going out.

    Although I don't understand why their hasn't been more cuts.. Freel is on this roster on Opening Day if he isn't dealt. He's proven he's healthy so far this spring.

    Glen Perkins is the Twin property that I'd target. Not sure Philly is a good match.

    Enthusiastic NO to Jesse Crain.

    I agree with whomever mentioned Glen Perkins. Though, I doubt the Twins would give up Perkins or even Crain for that matter for Freel.

    I'd prefer a legitimate prospect at this point. A High A kid maybe. Especially opposed to getting someone only marginally helpful that clogs the roster even more.

    This would likely be the way they go as they need to clear 3 or 4 spots on the 40 man for Cueto, Patterson, et al

    Patterson and Cueto could be added just by Capellan being offered back or if a trade was worked out. The 40 man roster stands at 39. As for others.. I really can't see anyone making the team other then those two. Perhaps Mercker or Hairston as Dusty really likes both.

    Hopper hasn't played in a week. I know they are showcasing Freel, but Hopper doesn't seem to get into the games at all. Is he hurt?

    Strange things happening in this camp.

    C. Trent said he had a family emergency.

    From the sounds of Joe Maddon the Rays manager, the Rays are very close to acquiring a 4th outfielder. He said they should have more information by the end of the day. Could this be Freel he was talking about?
