Jeff Francoeur Didn’t Sign Here! On to the Next One

Ben_fran_werth"Sooo, what size are your shoes?"

But whom?

Jeff Francoeur ended our long two day national citywide nightmare.  He signed with the Royals today. Yeah, that's going to end well.

So, now that the talented 26-year-old with a monster hose won't taint the Phils with his whining ways, they can look elsewhere, right?

What about Matt Diaz?  You know, the guy who took down Redman and kills lefties?  Oh, what's that Scoob, he went to the Pirates?  Damn.


Domonic Brown?  He's tired and sluggish and might start the season in the minors??  Wha…

I know, I know – Ben Fran!

We're running out of options, folks.

  1. If you are going to throw out ridiculous trade “options”, please spell the name of the player right….it’s Hamels. You would be a fan since ’09, way to just hop on the bandwagon.

  2. We signed Jason Hammel just to flip him to the Dodgers for Matt Kemp, who will now learn how to play Right Field? Ruben is a freaking genius.

  3. I really think something big is potentially brewing. This could be the “calm before the storm”.

  4. Whait we signed Jason Hammel? When did this happen? If we flip him for Matt freakin’ Kemp I am going to go berserk because that may very well be the greatest deal in the history of professional sports. Where is all this at?

  5. first of dont even say trade hamels hes a great asset to havewe need a bat and relief pitching but to grab lee wouldnt be so bad i just dont see it unless we try and top wtever ridicculous offer the yankees or anyone will throw at him

  6. why do these guys keep mentioning his “hose” was he a porn start to pay his way through college?

  7. @ Paul- No one is saying to trade Cole Hamels, they’re referring to former Rockies pitcher Jason Hammel.
    On another side-note more pertaining to this article, thank goodness we didn’t sign Frenchy. That dude isn’t just a tool satchel, he’s an entire aisle in Home Depot.
    Time’s yours.

  8. I still say we try to trade for Justin Upton or Ryan Braun…stay away from the 30 somethin’ year old outfielders….

  9. They’re waiting to pounce on Cliff Lee and keeping as much money free as possible. That’s my theory.

  10. Paul, 12 wins a year isn’t a “great asset.” He lost in the NLCS this year and cost us the World Series in 09.

  11. The Pittsburgh Penguins: Your favorite NHL team would be that good too if they had as many first and second overall picks as the Pens did from 03-06 says:

    FanSince09 is almost as pathetic as anyone who thinks Sidney Crosby is the best player in the NHL. Cole is the man, he pitched arguably the best non-Roy games this year (NLDS clincher especially)

  12. The Pittsburgh Penguins: Your favorite NHL team would be that good too if they had as many first and second overall picks as the Pens did from 03-06 says:

    and by non-Roy, I mean Doc.

  13. Wow, really? 12 wins is not good? How about when your hitting is godawful and you lose 2-1 or 1-0? This causes you to be devalued for your offense not giving you support? FanSince09 — you’re terrible at understanding statistics. Stop trying to support your ill-advised opinion without understanding what exactly your statistics mean.

  14. It’s hard to cost your team the World Series when you start ONE GAME. And this year, he gave up 74 runs, 71 earned, while Halladay gave up 74, 68 earned. Combine that with 208 innings and 211 strikeouts and MINIMAL run support, that’s a pitcher you want to KEEP.

  15. FanSince09 you are dumb as a bag of bricks. Cole Hamels was filthy last year. His 12 wins reflect us not hitting for him. Hell Halladay should’ve won damn near 30! Come on man.

  16. Hey what about the Phils making a play for Mike Cameron, I mean now that the Red Sox won the Crawford race, they dont have any use for him, he could/would (maybe) be a great outfield veteran mentor for Brown (if he ever gets back in shape). He bats righty, and could even sub in for Victorino in center on occasion… just an idea.
