Ryan Freel's Cindarella story came to an end but there were still some fireworks in the Sweet Sixteen. Rick Ankiel's one-year contract defeated the DeJesus-Mazzaro trade and the Howell-Gathright trade beat the Yasuhiko Yabuta signing in a real barn burner. The John Buck non-tender put up a good fight, but eventually succumbed to Kyle Farnsworth's two-year deal.
