I agree. And Freeman's struggles combined with losing d'Arnaud and Soroka right out of the gate and Ynoa to youthful stupidity doesn't help matters.
I think Freeman's slump is a combination of pressure mixed in with bad luck. Did you see that lineout to first in the first inning yesterday? A couple of feet in either direction and at worst it would have been men on 2nd and 3rd with no outs. Instead, Puhols stuck out his glove, mostly in self defense, caught the ball and stepped on the bag to double up Acuna.
As the de facto team leader, Freeman probably feels like it's up to him to get the team going. He is pressing instead of letting the game come to him. I'm confident he will figure it out.
