    Freeman kind of reminds me of the actor Adam Baldwin. He played Animal Mother in Full Metal Jacket.

    Id love if the Dodgers made a strong offer to the Reds for Luis Castillo and Votto.

    I actually can't find fault in him waiting to see all offers. This is likely the last substantial contract he will sign, and it's the first time he's really testing the market outside of Atlanta. It's just smart business.

    That's not to say that I don't think baseball players are overpaid. But still, if I were in his shoes I'd want to see all offers too.

    That said, him being from SoCal and given the Dodgers chances of getting him a back-to-back ring, I would expect as long as another offer doesn't blow ours away, he goes with LA.

    yes and no
    i get the business side
    but after having (allegedly) narrowed it down to two teams, and (also allegedly) only wanting to go to a WS contender… now any/every team is in?

    Sounds like the Dodgers offer is something like 4 years/140 mill.

    didn’t he turn down ATL’s offer because it was five years and he wanted six?
