CONFIRMED: Francoeur traded to the Mets

"Plus cash considerations" for Ryan Church.

Thanks for the call, Jo. I still can't believe it! Here's the article on mlb.com.


Bye, Jeff. I'll miss watching you run like a muppet. <3 (More to come this weekend...)

It's true! I've seen it on 3 different news stations and Ajc.com. Wow...shocking..

Hmm, I don't like this helmet. I'm going to try navy and red now.

Jessica said...

LOL, love that pic. I feel bad for Frenchy and Mac, but we all know Frenchy wasn't hitting for a long time...can't say I'm sad from a baseball perspective.

I'm going to miss Frency and his turkey briefs :(

katie said...

I'm kinda shocked.. I never thought the Braves would actually trade him.

Joey said...

DING DONG.

SCJ said...

Joe [i think it was him] said that Catie made Jeff feel secure and that everything would be okay. That's awesome. I like that! Wish him the best!

PS. late, but... that is a real tattoo on Carolyn's wrist.

OMG I missed it. I was on a date. I would have much rather have known this than being on the date- dude was a dud. Lauren, you need an alert text message/email like CNN has. :)

I hope Brian is ok. As stated earlier this week, I'm sure he'll get plenty of hugs.

Lauren T. said...

I *do* need an alert text! :D

I've spent my date-less evening fielding phone calls and IMs over this trade. It's been a very interesting four hours!

Jen said...

I just got home and heard the news! Nothing personal against Frenchy, but I started jumping up and down with glee. That, coupled with the margaritas that are still in me, made me very happy. :)

A damn Met of all things. Piss in my conflakes if you must, but don't aim for the OJ as well.

I'm sure it's what they feel is best for the team but I'm still kind of bummed. I liked him too much to just give up on him.

I never saw Mac smile tonight.

Amanda said...

I'm happy too, my reaction was probably similar to Jen's. Even though I like, ran out of patience with the jeff francoeur experiment a long time ago it's always kinda sad when even a player i don't like leaves for whatever reason, even if they suck.

One last lol frenchy?

Amanda, that sent a tear down my eye.
I cant believe how hard im taking this :/

I wrote frenchy a letter, ima mail it asap.

Could anyone imagine how bad itd be for me if moylan got traded?

:/

Bye frenchy, you will be missed

Ps: Did he take his turkey undies?

Stacey said...

I came straight here as soon as I got online to get your take on it. While I will miss Frenchy, I realize this is a game where winning is everything (esp in a sorry sports town like Atlanta). Bye, Frenchy. Hugs to Baby.

PS...it's gonna be weird when I'm there on the 17th and Frenchy is in a Mets uniform. I'll still give him a cheer when he comes to the plate, though.

Great LOL, Amanda. :D
