Jeff Francoeur recalled!

Postby Justblaze » Mon Jul 07, 2008 1:29 pm

Jeff Francoeur-OF-Braves Jul. 7 - 1:17 pm et

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the Braves will recall Jeff Francoeur from Double-A Mississippi prior to Monday night's game.
Well, that was quick. Francoeur went 7-for-13 in three games for Mississippi with a triple and two RBI. The Braves said they would send him to the minors for "less than 20 days," but with Omar Infante out Francoeur will rejoin the Atlanta outfield. He's been dropped in almost half of all leagues, so it's worth making sure he's not available.


I'd go get him.

Is he worth getting? I have Rick Ankiel and he's performing much better than Francoeur so I don't know if I should drop him for Jeff.

I'd grab him. Seems to have found his stroke, hopefully he'll post monster post-ASB numbers.

Found his stroke? Did you watch his games?? Please tell me you're not seriously thinking that 3 games in getting 7 hits (6 of which were singles) in AA ball means he's ready to feast on major league pitching!?!

You've got to be joking. What a Mariner-esque move by the Braves.


BTW - I love how his few days down @ AA his re-kindled fantasy interest in this loser. He'll be raking now, I'm sure....

Agreed. I don't know where this unbridled enthusiasm and faith in Francouer came from .... He was doing God - Awful when he got demoted and just because he's been able to hit AA pitching don't mean jack to me. Honestly, besides his rookie year, his numbers haven't been all that impressive.

Keep Ankiel.

He isn't worth owning in standard leagues. Deeper leagues with a large bench should be good to pick up.

Well, his rookie season was only 2 years ago and he's had around 85 runs scored, 105 RBI's, and a good avg. the past 2 years. His HR's went down last year and his batting avg. went up a bunch. I don't really know what there wasn't[i][/i] to like about him going into this year. I don't think people thought he would be much more than a 3rd outfielder and there's no reason to think he still can't be that for the 2nd half.

You can't wait on him because the next time he does anything remotely good, he'll be picked up. If he's available, you almost have to get him now and see what happens while he's on your bench. If he still stinks at the end of July, dump him. Thinking he's not worth taking a flier on in exchange for your worst bench guy doesn't make sense to me. You have to swing for the fences sometimes. If Francoeur works out, he could help win a league for you much more than holding onto some steady but unspectacular 4th outfielder.
