Building on the hacks against Ryan Freel and using this as a "Freel in 2006 thread", despite being injured for a good part of 2005, I think Freel is going to be overrated going into draft day. I'd rather take Placido Polanco, Mark Ellis, or Luis Castillo over him.

Speed doesn't slump, but it seems to dissapear without warning. It's safer to gamble on a more complete player. Freel doesn't help you anywhere besides steals and he will be turning 30 next season.

Freel can contribute if he stays healthy. For some reason the Reds now also have Aurilia and Womack and may have Freel in mind as more of a 4th OF than an INF-although I have no idea what O'brien is thinking. Based on his OBP I would prefer that he be the regular 2B.

On a personal note, this is his 2nd arrest for an alcohol related offense and there has been talk of at least one other alcohol related issue-(fight with D'Angelo Jimenez at a team function last year). I hope he can get the appropriate help if needed.

Poor Freel, Vick is grabbing the headlines from him today.

I just moved him from the 'sleeper' column to the 'coma' category on my cheat sheet.

30 years old and getting arrested at a pool hall? That's impressive.
