I think he has real value, but I'd like to keep Freddy.

What I want to know is why JR rested(?) him today. My goodness, he was 10 for 14 in his last three games. You just simply don't rest him when there is no game Thursday anyway. Is he so old he needs two days in a row off? Right in the middle of hot hitting this last week?

This is the second time he has rested him when he shouldn't have this season.



I wondered the same thing. I heard a pregame show interview with Russell and he said he knew he would get questioned for the decision, but explained it anyway. He said the decision was made and discussed with Freddy (and Jack) that each of them would need a day off. Initially, they were going to rest Freddy on Monday, but in the end decided (along with Freddy), that Wednesday would be a better day, with the off day on Thursday. I guess when we get back going tomorrow, we have something like 17 straight. So the decision was made before Freddy had the hot couple days, and they just stuck with the original plan.

Now, something I have not seen questioned. WHAT IN THE HELL was Freddy doing in the 9th inning?


Russell was going to sit Freddy Monday but changed his mind at the last moment...no 6 for 6 and no hot streak...

Lets not forget it was raining Tuesday night, the team was sitting and waiting in the cold for the game to be called or finished, then had to play a day game in the low 50's...

If there was a conspiracy they'd be sitting him 2 games in a row, not sending him out there a night after he made a diving grab on his bum shoulder...
