Um, I'm going to have to respectfully disagree with you there, Buddy. We may have the worst pitching staff in the majors. We may have the worst defense in the majors. But it's difficult to make an argument that we're not at least in the top 5 teams in offensive hitting. In fact, I believe we had the most runs scored of any team last year - without the aid of a DH.
That said, anyone who drafted Freel expecting anything more than 1/2-time duty was kidding themselves.
Why is that the case? Everyone in Cincinnati wishes they knew the answer - just like with fantasy players. It just doesn't make sense.
