More on the moves; Freel done

It sounds like a position player will be brought up shortly.

Ryan Freel says if the his knee is as bad as they expect, he's done for the year. "I'll be on crutches four to six weeks," he said.

Pete Mackanin on why Todd Coffey wasn't sent out: "I don't know how to answer that. There might be something else going on. You might ask Wayne (Krivsky). . . There's so much involved that I'm not privy too."

Gary Majewski said something applies to Coffey: "Sometimes it's better to go down (to the minors) and work on stuff than stay up here and get shellacked."

Haven't seen Krivsky yet.

Hi John,
Thanks for the info,even though it was bad news. Quick question on Homer. With him spending July & August in the minors/rehabbing, did his eligibility for arb/free agency get pushed back a year?

He was in the minors when he got hurt, so no.

John, Does it seem to you as it does to me that Mackanin is more out of the loop with player moves than most managers? It appears to me by his comments that he is not a candidate for for the permanent job next year. Interesting comment from Majewski.
