Atlanta Braves All-Star first baseman Freddie Freeman has listed his cozy home in Roswell, GA, for $775,000. Either the slugger is trading up to a grander place in Georgia, or he expects to get traded to a new destination.
His six-bedroom, 7.5-bathroom home is traditional and charming. Downstairs, there’s a dining room (complete with wainscoting), living room, kitchen, and breakfast nook. Off the kitchen, there’s a cozy den with a stone fireplace.
Upstairs, there’s a massive master suite with a fireplace, sitting area, and walk-in closets bigger than most bedrooms.
Of course, befitting a big leaguer, the basement has been converted into an entertainment space with a bar, room for a pool table, and enough space for a second living room.
The 26-year-old missed 44 games in 2015 due to a nagging wrist injury, but he recently said he’s feeling pain-free and ready to swing away in 2016.
The once-proud Braves are in the midst of a franchise rebuild, but Freeman is tied to Atlanta until 2021 (he signed an eight-year, $135 million contract extension in 2014). Unless, of course, he gets traded to a new destination in 2016.
One morning, when Gregor Samsa woke from troubled dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a horrible vermin.
He lay on his armour-like back, and if he lifted his head a little he could see his brown belly, slightly domed and divided by arches into stiff sections.
The bedding was hardly able to cover it and seemed ready to slide off any moment.
His many legs, pitifully thin compared with the size of the rest of him, waved about helplessly as he looked.
“What’s happened to me? ” he thought. It wasn’t a dream.
His room, a proper human room although a little too small, lay peacefully between its four familiar walls.
A collection of textile samples lay spread out on the table – Samsa was a travelling salesman – and above it there hung a picture that he had recently cut out of an illustrated magazine and housed in a nice, gilded frame.
It showed a lady fitted out with a fur hat and fur boa who sat upright, raising a heavy fur muff that covered the whole of her lower arm towards the viewer.
Gregor then turned to look out the window at the dull weather. Drops
