So they take a guy who is struggling in Atlanta and plunge him in the media spotlight of New York with a team that's expected to get to the world series? I suppose he's not a face of the franchise any more like he was along with McCann and Chipper in Atlanta and it might work out for the guy but i can't see tbh. Should be useful in that spacious outfield though.

I just heard of this today when I saw Francouer in a NYM box score. I guess it was just a way to give both players a change of scenery.

I agree with you completely Bandit. I thought Francouer was going to be a big time player, but he's struggled some the past couple seasons. Who knows, maybe that change of scenery vaults him back to batting around .280 or .290 with 25+ HR a year.
