    Reds may be interested in Jeff Francoeur.

    per mlb trade rumours.. dont know if the Braves would trade him.. hmmm thinking Arroyo (and a prospect) for jo jo Reyes and Francoeur??

    10:52pm: MLB.com's Mark Bowman says the Reds "may have some interest in Jeff Francoeur." However, the Braves don't want to move him.

    Jeff Francoeur would be a huge disappointment to me after the Jermaine Dye rumors.

    I second that, and of this banter on what it would cost to get Shoppach can die off to. i like the guy but not at any price with names being tossed around. In the end I want the Red's to acquire somebody at catcher but not at some over inflated insane cost.

    God NO.

    We're going to be OBP challenged enough as it is.

    I HATE Francoeur's game.

    He's 24--how can you hate his game? It hasn't even developed yet. Francoeur is EXACTLY the type of player the Reds should go after--young, cheap and extremely talented right handed bat.

    Who knows. But he's a top, top talent. Put him in the mix with our young gang I say...

    If he could be had cheaply I'd have no problem taking a chance on him but I wouldn't give up anything of great value for Francoeur.

    I agree--I think it's a matter of price. He's the type of player though who's HR numbers would go up by a high percentage at GABP.

    One Brandon Phillips is enough for this team.

    Warts and all, the Braves wil hold out for a large ransom before moving moving Francouer. Cheap is the one thing he won't be. I'd pass unless you have a pretty good idea of what went wrong this past year and are confident you can fix him.

    Like many have said before, be very wary of somebody the Braves are willing to trade.
