Frenchie, when asked if he is sad that he’s not part of the Braves’ late season wild card surge:
I wish them nothing but the best,” Francoeur said, “but to be honest
with you, there’s not even a .1 percent chance that I’d want to be back
there right now. It has nothing to do with the people there because I
love Bobby [Cox] and I love that team. But sometimes you just gotta get out of the situation, and I was a guy that needed to get out.”
Yeah, it’s probably best that he’s not back there. Because if he was, someone may put two and two together and realize that his .250/.282/.352 line while in Atlanta is the main reason why the Braves have had to surge just to get into the playoff conversation in the first place.
