Uber-tweeter Will Carroll tweets:
injuryexpert RT @Jbowdeniv: Francoeur to Royals not dead......... "I'm not dead." "He'll be dead any minute." "I'm feeling much better!"
If I were a Royals fan, I'd be hoping the Atlanta Braves were taking back very little, but I fear Francoeur's contract status (2nd year arbitration eligible) will mean a viable major leaguer/top prospect will be leaving the organization. Jose Guillen's $12MM 2010 salary would make it palatable, I guess.
Worse, if I were a Royals' fan, the best part of that tweet was the reference to one of the greatest comedies of all time - Monthy Python and the Holy Grail.
Should the Kansas City Royals continued to pursue Atlanta Braves' OF Jeff Francoeur?
Yes. Potential always outweighs other issues like character or performance to date. (186 votes)
No. Two full seasons of horrible hitting makes the talent question moot. (187 votes)
