We promised we were going to start writing more about Freddie Freeman very soon, and he’s given us reason to.
Freeman enjoyed a big couple days up in Toronto – a two game set in which the Braves won both games as underdogs. Freeman hit his 14th home run of the season this afternoon north of the border. He hit his 13th of the season last evening, a three run shot that was equally majestic.
We recently dealt a lot for Freeman in a fantasy league because we think he’s going to have one of those seasons that is unforgettable. He’s an MVP candidate on a bad team. Outside of Harper and Trout, there’s not one guy I can think of who is better with the bat right now. He’s up to a .343 batting average, a .457 on-base percentage, and a 1.211 OPS on the year.
Welcome back to the team Freddie. Keep doing your thing.
