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)
