Mets Looking to Trade Jeff Francoeur

After Carlos Beltran came back from knee surgery, the Mets had a tough choice to make. Who would be the starting right fielder. Jeff Francoeur, or Angel Pagan. The question has been answered, and because of that answer, that could ultimately make Jeff Francoeur trade bait.

According to MetsBlog.com’s Matthew Cerrone, the Mets are currently looking to trade Jeff Francoeur. Mike Puma of the New York Daily News reports that a deal for Francoeur appears a possibility.

Jeff Francoeur has been one of Omar Minaya’s best trades ever in my opinion. Ever since Jeff Francoeur has come to New York, he has helped this team offensively and defensively, by saving runs, and hitting in the clutch (for the most part). If Jeff Francoeur were traded, however acquires him will have a quality outfielder who can hit for power, and drive in runs.
