From the Wire….Freel Traded to Kansas City

According to a report on Cubs.com, Ryan Freel and cash were traded to the Royals for a PTBNL on Monday. The Cubs designated Freel for assignment on July 2.

The Cubs had ten days to either trade or release Ryan Freel. At least the organization will receive compensation for Freel … and in turn Joey Gathright.

Quote of the Day

"People ask me a lot about the values I got from playing for the Cubs for so many years. The value I got out of it was patience. A lot of people these days are not very patient." - Ernie Banks
