If you haven't heard, yesterday the Mets and Braves swamped OFs Ryan Church and Jeff Francoeur. Apparently, Mets GM Omar Minaya wanted to send a message, which leaves me wondering if said message was, "I have no idea what I'm doing. Please fire me before I mess things up any further." (Sorry, as a Mets fan, this jab is mandated. Be thankful I'll stop here .)
From a fantasy perspective, both players probably figure to be helped by the trade in the way of more playing time/better job security. Francoeur should play pretty regularly in RF for the Mets (as unqualified as he is to do so) and could find himself batting fifth for a while. Church's situation is a little less clear. He could play regularly or platoon with someone like Matt Diaz. We'll have to wait and see what Bobby Cox does. He'd be the better half of the platoon, though, and his power could be helped by Turner Field. If he winds up in a full-time role (or near full-time role), he could warrant a pickup in all 12-team mixed leagues.
