    Sam Freeman

    At what point is enough enough?!? This bum should have been released about a month ago! You can crawl out from under your couch at any moment now Mr. Intelli Brave, @Enscheff!

    Maybe they're just scared they'll accidentally release the wrong Freeman.
    From your favorite message board poster (me).

    he doesn't need to be released, DL him for now.

    Or maybe DFA him with the plan of him clearing waivers and going to Gwinnett to try to regain confidence, it'd be surprising if someone claimed him even if he's a living breathing left hander because while his metrics are better (because some of this is simply bad luck, while major league hitters punish meatballs, everything that is a meatball from him is getting hammered now), he's been so bad, his command has been so bad, and he's 31 years old, so it's doubtful anyone wants to claim him and take a shot.
    Aggression with prospects is fine, but being stupid is not. There should be a way to find a happy medium between a Pirates like idea of being overly cautious with prospects and going stupidly fast with prospects.

    The walks are what's killing him and the walks aren't bad luck. They're bad pitching. 6 BBs per 9 from a reliever will mean he's going to give up runs more often than not.

    Where did I say all of it was bad luck? I just said some of it was.

    I'd gladly not have him on the next roster, but still.

    I'm just hesitant to write any of it off as bad luck. Giving up a hit on a mistake alone doesn't hurt that much as long as you keep it in the park. It hurts when you're walking the world.

    When every mistake pitch thrown by you is getting absolutely clobbered no matter what, yes some of it is. That shouldn't happen. Yes, some should, but a lot of the mistake pitches are getting clobbered.

    BABIP is only .302.

    At least it will be justifiable to fire Snitker at the end of the season now. There is no way a new manager lets Freeman anywhere near his bullpen.

    I apologize to you but I will not be talked to like a juvenile and insulted without retaliating. I did my best to stay away from the poster but he insulted me and then Sam crapped the bed (again) his very next time out.

    Back on topic: DFA Sam Freeman!

    Freeman officially to the "DL". The front office had to do something and I applaud them even though it should have happened two months ago!

    I must have missed it...

    Was Freeman sent to the 10 day DL as I predicted?

    Or was he DFA'd as others predicted?

    Anyone have this answer for me? Thanks!
    I think he (Teheran) finishes with a FIP ~3.3. -CrazyTrain 3/25/2019

    Gausman had a bad walk ratio for us -CrazyTrain 11/20/2018
    BB/9 with Braves: 2.72

    Fried, Newk and a couple other guys for Bumgarner and give him a pay day for 6ish years -CrazyTrain 10/15/18
