DMIT - Sweet Sixteen

Now things really get crazy.  We're in the Sweet Sixteen and while there were some big early upsets, things have settled down a bit.  The only Cindarella story is the Ryan Freel acquisition.  Who knew?  But I think it is almost midnight for Freel as he's about to hit the juggernauts of Willie Bloomquist's two-year deal and Jose Guillen's three-year mega-contract.  From this point on in the tourney, there are no gimmes.  Every matchup is going to be tough.  When you've got this much incompetence to choose from, anyone can win.
