David Freese was REALLY drunk

Leave a comment

On Monday we noted that Cardinals’ third baseman David Freese was charged with DWI.  We didn’t know then just how drunk he was. The answer: really, really drunk:

Cardinals third baseman David R. Freese was driving with a blood
alcohol level of 0.232 — almost three times the legal limit in Missouri
— when he was arrested over the weekend, according to a police report
released Tuesday.

He told the arresting officer that he had consumed seven beers, and was
driving from downtown to his home near Lafayette High School in west
St. Louis County.

If he admitted to seven beers, the real number — at least if human nature is any guide — was probably a lot higher. No matter the case, 0.232 is pretty nutso, especially for a big strong athlete.  Nutso enough to cause the Cardinals to have to reconsider handing him the third base job is uncertain, but I suppose we’ll know fairly soon.

Corey Seager will be included on Dodgers’ World Series roster

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.

Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.

Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
