PLAYERS: Ryan Freel
by: Parker Perry @ParkerPerry_ The New York Times examined Ryan Freel thoroughly in their latest story on the former Cincinnati Red. Mike Tierney, of the Times, spoke with Freel's ex-wife, looked deep into his injuries, and went through his entire career. While his peers and fans praised Freel’s headfirst approach throughout an eight-year career in the major leagues, which he deemed necessary to compensate for being undersize and less talented, the person closest to him became tormented by it.          “I cringed that that’s who he was — all-out, full throttle,” she said. “It was very hard to watch.               New York Times ” It is well worth the read.
