    Cubs interested in Ryan Freel

    MLB - Sources: Cubs in talks with O's over Freel - FOX Sports on MSN

    As much as I love Fontenot, I am sick of a 5 foot midget playing 3B when Aramis is hurt. So, I would be all for this.

    Fontenot is outperforming DLee, Bradley, and several others on the team. I don't want him gone at all. I could care less if the guy is 3' tall if he puts up numbers.

    They wouldn't have this problem if they would have signed Nomar instead of Miles. Nomar can play every infield position and still hits.

    Re: Cubs interested in Ryan Freel

    Can Freel play the middle infield? If so does that mean we can get rid of Gathright and Miles? Not a fan of either

    When did I say I wanted him gone? I said I don't want him playing 3B.

    Re: Cubs interested in Ryan Freel

    I wish they would have just kept Derosa. Since that ship sailed I think depending on what they would have to give up he may be worth it as long as they get rid of Miles in the process

    Re: Cubs interested in Ryan Freel

    I didn't hate that they gave up DeRosa. He will never repeat the kind of year he has last year. The part I hated was replacing him Aaron Miles. When Aramis is hurt, we seriously have the shortest infield in the history of infields.

    Re: Cubs interested in Ryan Freel

    Ryan Freel is a bad guy.

    The Cubs need to stand pat and weather the storm. May is not the time to get jumpy about the state of the team. Ramirez is back in the lineup.

    What makes Freel a bad guy? I'm curious, not trying to be a smart ***.

    I agree I don't think he will ever have that kind of offensive year again, but it is tough to trade someone that can play just about every position and play it well

    Maybe I should have said 'drunk' instead of 'bad'. He has a history of being arrested after drinking.
