Mets trade Church for Francouer....


This is funny.  Jeff Francouer has been terrible this year...and for a couple of years.  Church has been injured some this year, but he is a reasonably useful outfielder.  Francouer costs more too.  What really makes this funny is to look at the comments at Baseball Think Factory, which is a sabermetric web site with many Mets fans who are regulars.  Francouer is kind of like the anti-christ to die hard sabermetrics people.  Francouer has been a running joke at BBTF.  So, a sample of some of those BBTF Mets' fans comments:

Did you hear Omar's press conference? It was surreal. Basically, they were brainstorming yesterday afternoon, and this guy named "John Rico (sp?)" came up with Jeff Francoeur. Brainstorming and you come up with JEFF FREAKIN' FRANCOEUR? Is this an anti-think tank that Omar employs!?

 

 

I stated last night I'd rather have cancer than Redding and Livan.

I think I spoke too soon.

 

I am ashamed to be a Mets fan.


this isn't a trade, this is a cry for help
