    Ryan Freel, DFA'd (again)

    The Royals DFA'd our old friend Ryan Freel (as well as Farney) today.

    Does anyone think the Reds should pick him up to play CF and lead off for the rest of the season? I would only be for it if Willie T is sent to AAA or DFA'd himself.

    That would be kind of kooky to pick up a guy you traded and have him play with the guy you traded him for.

    Or sit on the DL with the guy you traded him for.

    These questions are so silly and frustrating because we all know that there are 1,500 better options for CF that would be great additions over WT (not directed at you SOL). Unfortunately, the guys in charge don't realize this.

    Yet they get paid millions for this.

    But then again, it's been just that kind of season.

    He stays on a team about as long as he stayed on 1st base before getting picked off.

    I love Freel, but no.

    Play Sutton everyday, not Freel. Minus whale.

    Bite your tongue.

    Isn't it amazing that the only team that thought Ryan Freel had any value was the Cincinnati Reds? Even the fans are gullible. Baffles me.
