In Defense Of Jeff Francoeur

An article by posted on July 11, 2009 0 Comments

It’s amazing how wide ranging the opinions have been on the trade that sent Ryan Church to Atlanta for Jeff Francoeur on Friday. It looks likes this trade has the fan base far more divided than the Lastings Milledge trade, with both sides either loving it or hating it. I took a spin around a few […]

The Mets made a couple of moves today. First, they claimed veteran infielder Angel Berroa off waivers from the Yankees and assigned him to AAA Buffalo.

JMAN’s post-game last night–not so good. Very Randolph-esque now. Lots of mumblin’, lots of hoping, lots of “it’s not so good; we have to try to turn it around” crap! Fans, I’m thinkin’ it’s high time for a little fire and brimstone. Whadda ya say? No one would seriously argue that a bit of the […]

Moments ago in a press conference, Mets general manager Omar Minaya announced that they have traded rightfielder Ryan Church to the Atlanta Braves for rightfielder Jeff Francoeur.

Quick and to the point: I don’t understand the trade. We didn’t gain anything better than what we gave away.
