What an odd year... Dontrelle Willis, Brett Myers, and now Jeff Francoeur. Apparently the Braves were real hesitent to do this, because of the possible backlash from their fan base, who adore Francoeur (an Atlanta home town boy). He and Brian McCann have been best friends and teammates since they were 12 years old.
He's struggling pretty darn bad at the plate, batting just .234... but at least he has 41 RBI. To put that in perspective, Ken Griffey Jr is batting .237 with 36 RBI.
