Cubs Trade Ryan Freel To Royals For PTBNL

The Cubs are making all kinds of news today. Well, this return on Freel is better than an outright release, I guess. From the press release:

The Chicago Cubs today traded infielder Ryan Freel to the Kansas City Royals for a player to be named.

Freel was designated for assignment by the Cubs on July 2. In 14 games with Chicago, Freel batted .143 (4-for-28) with one run scored and one RBI.

Yeah, I know. Not much. But then, neither was his Cubs career. That one run scored was a mad dash home in the eighth inning on June 27 vs. the White Sox after a groundout to first. Bye-bye, Ryan. We hardly knew 'ye.
