Getting to know Freddie Freeman

Dec 21, 2010, 11:32 AM EDT

Freddie Freeman

I had the pleasure of meeting Kevin Orris at the Winter Meetings. Two takeaways from meeting Kevin: (1) he’s impossibly, ridiculously, painfully young; and (2) he’s really, really damn bright.  If any of us had it as together as he does at his age we’d all be running teams right now.

Anyway, today Kevin has a post up over at the Braves blog Capitol Avenue Club talking about Freddie Freeman, who will most likely be manning first base for the Braves next season.  In addition to his analysis of Freeman as a prospect, Kevin has a link to an interview he conducted of Freeman during the 2009 season.  Freeman is easily the biggest X-factor for the Braves next season — the most we know about him is that he has a chance to be the best Braves player named Freeman since Marvin — so information on him is at a premium.  Kevin has the best information I’ve seen so far.

      That is an impressive swing right there.

    That’s a picture of Cody Johnson, not Freddie Freeman. You can tell because that guy looks like an athlete, whereas Freddie Freeman looks like a goober:

      I, too, believe this picture is of Cody Johnson.

      Although in Craig’s defense, whoever is pictured here appears to be running the bases, not walking dejectedly back to the dugout. Kinda hard to recognize Cody Johnson so far out of context, you know?
