Would you want Jeff Francoeur?

With OBP and OPS the new trend in valuing players, Jeff Francoeur is quite an interesting player to discuss.  Francoeur is now hitting 261/283/441 with an OPS of 724, which is down from the 884 from last season.  This season is probably closer to what you will actually get from Francoeur, but it is interesting to notice that his OBP is pretty putrid.  So, my question to you, without taking into account his age (and further player development), would you want a player in right field hitting 261/283/441 with 17 HRs and 64 RBIs at this point in the season.  

The reason I ask is that Ryan Harvey, now at Daytona, may one day end up being that player.  Harvey struggled early in the season, but is now starting to hit, but he doesn't walk, strikes out a ton, but does produce HRs and RBIs.

Discuss.
