Is anyone that surprised by this honestly? I would of expected at least a few walks, but his entire history shows he isn't patient and it's catching up w/ him now. He basically had a hot month and people fell in love, everyone should of saw this coming like a brick wall.

In aspect to Felix, he pitched very well the whole time he was up. He didn't throw out any red flags that he wasn't ready after he was called up.

Didn't he not take a walk in something like the first 96 plate appearances of his career, either?

If you looked at his splits last year, he was going down in OBP and BA once he went through the league once. Unfortunately, he isn't Vlad, who can hit absolutely anything...

I can't see Francouer NOT succeed. He will be the Braves future, will likely put up .280, 80 R, 25 HRs, 95 RBIs after this year is over and the sophmore slump is done with.

He was called up too early, every Brave fan knows it. He needed one more year but management got impatient and needed help NOW. Kelly Johnson was the answer here, they should have kept Francouer down and let langerhans and kelly Johnson man the field (I realize Johnson is injured now, I meant when he returns). Francouer really needs at least 3-4 more minors months of seasoning.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I believe you have him confused with Brian McCann, the best C in the NL.

I think you have him confused with Willingham, lol. I'm kidding because Willingham is a LF..I just hope Willingham gets 5 games at C to remain a C for fantasy.
You have no frame of reference, Donny. You're like a child who walks into the middle of a movie...
