    Ryan Freel

    Doing my best not to attack the player, but is he the dumbest baseball player of all time? That was the 2nd time tonight he dove for a ball that he could have caught standing, and this time it cost him and the Reds.

    I'm not sure he could have caught that one standing up.

    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 would say he could have caught that in stride. So standing, no. Upright, yes.
    This place use to be fun

    He could have ran through that ball, IMO.

    Say what you will...but he is responsible for the 1 run the Reds have put on the board the last 2 nights...gotta look at the big picture/true problems.

    Big picture/true problem is our entire OF and bench are producing next to nothing. He's part of both.

    Hey...exactly my point, that defensive play tonight was meaningless when your team only scores 1 run.

    Ryan Freel is one of the few players on this roster actually performing.

    Amazing. Ryan Freel just got picked off again. It's almost laughable now.

    Getting picked off should take away from OBP.

    He should have caught that ball. Now, he may be injured yet again.

    He's the one player on this team that you cannot look at the OBP to see if he's getting anything done. His poor baserunning and horrible decisions costs the team more than he adds to it.

    If the umpires and Bobby Cox think so much of them, trade him or give him away to the Braves tomorrow and eat the flipping salary.

    Re: Ryan Freel

    Freel is a continuation of the Pete Rose Curse.
    With Pete, we had a kind of little guy who hustled a lot and played hard at all times. When we see another player who does the same, we embrace him - sometimes a little too much. There are a lot of Joe Sixpacks who love the guy (I've more than a few coworkers who are very surprised when I keep saying the team should have traded him a couple of years ago when his value was high - and that I think he hurts the team more than helps him with his style of play now more than anything else).
    Unfortunately, as with the case of Sabo and more so Freel, they have a lot less talent than Rose and nowhere near the baseball smarts. And, now instead of having a hustling great player, we have a careless player who has a very good potential of hurting himself - and someone else.
    It's that second part which has made me wish the Reds had gotten rid of him a long time.
