I am shocked... SHOCKED... that no other club wanted Ryan Freel. What is the world coming to? And by that, I mean "To what is the world coming?" Don't worry, though, I'm sure the Cubs will still make out OK. I'm waiting for the announcement on that PTBNL; Vegas odds show Mike Montgomery and Dan Duffy as the front runners. Teahen is the dark horse candidate (if, of course, the Royals agree to pick up the rest of his salary).
