If you think he's an average defensive third baseman, David Freese is not having a great year. If you think he's been as bad, this year, as UZR and DRS both insist, it's been a bad one. That's the difference between a passable season and a replacement-level season, basically, and it's coming in his age-30 season, the moment a bad season tips over from "frustrating" to "ominous." (If you'd like a reminder of how late Freese got started, he's now the same age as Scott Rolen was in his lost 2005.)
