I am wondering why Jocketty didn't snatch Juan Francisco back up after Atlanta released him? He is hitting .255 with 17 HR and 45 RBI. He would provide a potent option off our bench as well as spot starting at 3B and 1B.
Acquiring Hoover was great, but it would have been sweet to get Francisco back. I guess giving Hannahan a 2 year deal wasn't really that smart.
Our bench would be:
Hannahan or Izturis ( depends on which one they wanted to keep)
I know I would rather have Juan Francisco instead of Jack Hannahan.
