"Me, I look at Freeman and see a player whose decline phase will be a very gentle glide slope. I think he’s Edgar Martinez or Paul O’Neill, someone who is going to keep performing at his established level for the next few years and still be a good player at the end of this contract. I think this deal, whatever its top-line number, is a steal for the Dodgers."
