Keeping David Freese
So I have heard a few trade rumors but none seem to be as intriguing as this one.
I saw on the STL Cardinals Baseball Facebook page that the Cards might consider trading David Freese at some point this year. We all know David Freese hasn’t been himself this year, but I don’t want to see him go. Like I said, he’s been in a “season long” slump, but he has shown occasional signs of life. He hit .333 against Philadelphia and San Diego recently. He also crafted the team’s best hitting streak of the season when he hit in 20 consecutive games at the end of May.
Freese was a big part of an amazing World Championship in 2011. He means a lot to St. Louis as a person and as a player. He can still hit, and he’s a good third baseman. I’m not saying the team should make him a “Cardinal for life,” but they shouldn’t give up on him so easily.
All in all, I think we all dont want to see Freese go.
