Oh snap! Mets fans aren't gonna like what Jeff Francoeur just said

Oct 14, 2010, 11:01 AM EDT

Jeff Francoeur is always smiling, the media loves him and I’m totally prepared to admit that my hatred of him is highly irrational. But sometimes I’m convinced that he truly is evil.  Listen to what he told the Daily News:

“I always wanted to know what it was like to play meaningful baseball in New York and I’m going to have the opportunity.”

There’s about a 99.2% chance that the turn of phrase was totally innocuous, and all he means is that he wanted to make the playoffs with the Mets. There’s a 0.8% chance, however — and it’s a 0.8% I’m clinging too! — that he was wanting to make Mets fans feel awful about following a hopeless team that he himself helped make hopeless.

Which would be impossibly and deliciously mean of Frenchie. So much so that I’d consider buying him a drink and giving him a high-five if I saw him out someplace.

    I think you flipped the % value to the wrong description of intent here. He was so obviously mooning the Mutts there. I like this guy more every day…… I might even call him Mr. Francoeur instead of Frenchie at this point if i saw him on the street.

    Yeah, I’m pretty sure this was meant to slap the Mets in the face. Craig, how can you dislike Frenchie as a person? Sure, he isn’t the greatest baseball player but you two both bash the Mets now. What do you dislike more? The Mets or Frenchie?

    Craig, I’d like to see you call out to Frenchie to give you an exclusive interview this off-season. Put some skills of yours to work!

    Chipwich. I hope Joba throws one off his helmet the first chance he gets. And then steps on his head just to make sure.

    After that line, I’m ready to have the Phillies sign him and platoon with Domonic Brown in right next year.
