2008-05-09 14:00:00 (link to chat)The Freddie Bynum era has started! Blow the trumpets! Release the pigeons! Seriously, there has to be cheaply available SS better than what the O's have?
(Cal Jr from Aberdeen)
Hey, Freddie Bynum can do some fun things, he's no Luis Hernandez. He might be a bit error-prone to seriously stomach at short over an extended period of time, but it beats trading for... well, for Luis Hernandez. (Christina Kahrl)
