Why Is David Freese Still Unsigned?

October of 2011 belonged to former St. Louis Cardinals third baseman David Freese. During the Cardinals' playoff run, Freese hit .342 with five home runs and 21 RBIs en route to winning the NLCS and World Series MVPs. Freese's terror included two historic hits in Game 6 of the World Series: the first extended the game to extra innings and the latter was a walk-off home run that ended...

Questioning David Freese’s 2014 season

Today, I am starting a new series for the offseason because I clearly don’t do enough offseason series (i.e. top prospects, player projections, free agency preview). This series will functionally be a season in review for each player, but I’m not going to bother with all the basic info. You watch the Angels, you know this stuff already. Instead, I’ll be looking back at some...

David Freese has big night in return to Angels lineup

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The pain in his fractured middle finger, for the most part, has gone away, Angels third baseman David Freese said. The slight pain he experiences, for example, when he fouls a ball off of the end of the bat, comes and goes but is just more annoying than anything else. Tuesday night in his return to the Angels lineup for the first time since May 2, Freese became...

Los Angeles Angels rumors: Matt Garza edition

The Los Angeles Angels had two priorities going into the offseason, find a third baseman and load the pitching staff with good arms. Matt Garza would be a great addition to the Angels’ rotation that suffered last season. They were able to find their third baseman early into the offseason when they traded center fielder Peter Bourjos to the St. Louis Cardinals for third baseman...

Los Angeles Angels Gamble On David Freese And Kole Calhoun

The Los Angeles Angels took a risk last Friday, trading center fielder Peter Bourjos and outfield prospect Randal Grichuk to the St. Louis Cardinals, in exchange for third baseman David Freese and reliever Fernando Salas.

David Freese trade thoughts..

By Greg Bearringer, Columnist - 1) David Freese might as well wear a sign that says "average third baseman" around his neck, because I think that's probably what the Angels are expecting out of him next season. He is probably better that (since he has pretty good plate discipline), but a back injury might just eat into his playing time over the next two seasons. Barring...

Los Angeles Angels get third baseman

Well that didn’t take long, three weeks into the offseason and the Los Angeles Angels have made their first big move. The Angels top priority this offseason is certainly pitching and there was talk about them trading one of their young position players in order to bring in some arms to reinforce the starting rotation behind ace Jered Weaver and C.J. Wilson. The lineup is pretty...

Freese ready to start new chapter in Los Angeles

ST. LOUIS -- David Freese said about pretty much everything you would expect him to say following his trade from his hometown Cardinals to the Los Angeles Friday afternoon. He thanked the Cardinals, said he's happy to hook up with a contender like the Angels and vowed the last thing he is worried about is his hitting in 2014. And, not surprisingly, he said it all with the same level...

The St. Louis Cardinals trade David Freese

The St. Louis Cardinals finally made their first major move of the offseason by trading David Freese to the Angels.  The Cards sent Freese and enigmatic relief pitcher Fernando Salas to L.A. for speedy outfielder Peter Bourjos and outfield prospect Randal Grichuk.
