C'mon guys! Who did you think we were going to get without giving up someone? Sorry, but Francoeur is as good as it gets if you want to upgrade the OF without giving up a good prospect. You guys love you some Derrick Robinson and Chris Heisey, eh?
Let's get serious. No one here "likes" Francoeur. But is he an upgrade over Derrick Robinson? Absolutely.
Do you really think he's even an upgrade over Robinson? Francoeur has been unbelievably terrible. Worst player in baseball terrible. That's not an exaggeration. At least Robinson brings speed to the table, and he's been getting on base at a halfway decent clip. Jeff Francoeur is a poor man's Jonny Gomes.
