There's a chance Jeff Francoeur could be spending his last day as a New York Met.
Two MLB sources told ESPNNewYork.com that the Texas Rangers are looking for a right-handed-hitting outfielder for the bench and are considering Francoeur.
"His name has definitely been talked about," one source said.
They say everything is bigger in Texas. I wonder what Francoeur’s OBP would look like there.
But seriously, this would be a smart move for the Mets.
Let the man go. He shouldn’t factor into next year’s lineup as it is, smile or no smile. Deal him now and let Fernando Martinez (or someone else) get a few rips up at the MLB level in this lost year.
