Factoid alert

Some sports feats just kind of make you sit up and take notice. Take what Cincinnati Reds outfielder Ryan Freel did Wednesday night.

Freel entered the game batting just .289 with two homers and nine RBI. Pretty inauspicious ... actually if the Reds were in the playoff race, Freel would likely be playing down in Triple-A Lousiville.

Freel stole five bases, a team record. A team that has played baseball since -- say it with me now -- 1869.

Not a bad way to be a footnote in team history.
