2011 Topps Jeff Francoeur custom card   Leave a comment

Jeff Francoeur 2011 ToppsI am behind this signing. I was against it at first, but after interviews and hearing what teammates say about Francoeur, I am behind him. I will admit it seems rather similar to the Mike Jacobs situation of 2009 because he was a great guy, great teammate but the skills he brought to the team didn’t match up with the team’s needs.

Jeff Francoeur will be different. I am convinced of this. Even if he doesn’t have a great year, he will be a good influence on some young players and allow those same young players time to develop before next year. I have never been very good at predicting stat lines for a year but I’m think Francoeur will end up somewhere around .265, 18 HR, 68 RBI. Not huge numbers but would undoubtedly be a respectable line for both Francoeur and the Royals.
