Francoeur for the All-Star Game

Jul 3, 2009, 10:31 AM EDT

I’ve known Sports Illustrated’s Tim Marchman — in that way that people
know each other on the Internet — for a year or two now. And I thought
we were friends and everything. So why he’s trying to raise my blood
pressure and force me into having a heart attack I don’t know, but he’s
doing it anyway. From his All-Star picks column:

Right field: Jeff Francoeur, Atlanta: Apologies to Justin
Upton, but when baseball no longer has a place for the likes of
Francoeur, a player so extravagantly talented that he can hold down a
major league job despite seemingly having little more idea of what to
do with that talent than a tomcat, baseball will no longer be worth
watching.

May as well agitate for a contract extension while you’re at it, Tim. Sheesh.
