So what happen to that Frenchy that was OK with the Mets decision to bench him in favor of Angel Pagan?Â Has sitting on the bench during a losing streak brought out the competitive fire?Â Has he seen the righting on the wall?
From Surfing the Mets:
Jeff Francoeur emphasized Thursday that he â€œlovedâ€ playing for the Mets, but also said that he would prefer to be traded to a team that could offer the outfielder more playing time.
â€œIf there was an opportunity to play more somewhere else, that would be great,â€ Francoeur said. â€œI love it here, but if they decide to go in a different direction, I would be happy to play somewhere else.â€
Francoeur also went on to say: â€œI see the way things are going.Â I see that certain guys have to play. I love it here, but I love to play.â€
There are plenty of rumors suggesting a trade of Francoeur is in the works.Â It’s a shame that he could not continue to build on the success of his summer of 2009.
