Atlanta at Philadelphia


Recommended Posts

Honestly I gave Freddie a hard time about him saying he was shocked when he saw Braves had signed Olson. And I have continued feeling that way because I felt if his agent screwed him over, why didn’t he fire him?

 I can now look at this whole situation differently. I think he did want to be a Brave, but as someone said, it was a perfect storm against resigning him.

He looked miserable in the Dodgers dug out. That’s a hard lesson for him.

He still had to a choice in signing the contract. I'll say again, if Freeman really wanted to be here, he would have been, and he would have taken charge of the negotiation process much more personally to ensure that (by accounts, it seems as though he was hands-off and let his agent do all the talking - which isn't unusual when players have agents). Period. 

Well, I think the lockout might have had an effect on that as well
