Woo hoo!!!!I've never felt more loved and cared for in the world than I do right now. No less than 25 people have emailed, Twittered, Facebooked, and/or smoke signaled me to give me this glorious, wondrous news:
Two National League East foes swapped outfielders on Friday, as the Mets traded Ryan Church to the Braves for Jeff Francoeur. Church, a 30-year-old lefty hitter, was batting .280 with two home runs and 22 RBIs in 67 games for the New York. Francoeur, a 25-year-old righty bat, was hitting .250 with five homers and 35 RBIs in 82 games for Atlanta.
I repeat: someone has given the Braves actual value (with value defined as "a sentient being possibly capable of playing baseball") for Jeff Francoeur.
That it's the Mets only makes it sweeter.
I will sleep very, very well this weekend. Assuming of course I ever stop laughing.
(thanks to a jillion people for the heads up)

Now that Omar is in the trading for the other guy’s rubbish mode, what are the chances of him taking on Barry Zito and Alfonso Soriano?
