Freel slips away

Not only did the Cardinals miss a great chance to add an important element to this team. But they allowed that player to slip to their biggest rival.

Bravo, once again, do-nothing Redbirds front office.

Ryan Freel, put of the trading block earlier in the week, was shipped by the Orioles to the Cubs for a marginal player. Do the Cardinals plan to sit on Bryan Anderson until he is a valueless as Anthony Reyes when they finally dealt him?

Freel is a much needed righthanded bat who can play just about anyplace. He's a very high energy player who inspires his team mates. And, now he is a Cub.
