Freddie Freeman should not have been playing at the end of 2019

Let’s start off by getting the obvious out of the way — I’m a huge fan of Freddie Freeman. It’s already been noted that he’s been with the Braves through the ups, downs, and ups again and it’s clear that he loves this franchise like he’s a fan and we’ve shared that love of the Braves with him. It’s clear now by his actions that he’s willing to do just about anything to get out there on the field and represent the Braves and while his intent is admirable and his determination is otherworldly, the lengths that he went to in order to simply get out there on the field should have been very concerning — and it may have ended up being detrimental to the team.
