Interesting Trade

On July 10th there was an interesting trade. It is a bit of a head scratcher, the New York Mets and the Atlanta Braves swapped outfielders. Jeff Francoeur, 24, swapped teams with the Mets outfielder Ryan Church, 30. Jeff Francoeur was a highly named prospect, who hasn't been as spectacular as predicted. Francoeur had two solid years in 2006, and 2007. He really struggled in 2008 and 2009 hasn't been much better. Ryan Church is just an average player, this is his 6th year in the majors and most likely won't get better. In my mind the Mets got the better part of the deal, Francoeur has had better seasons than Church, and he is still young. I believe Francoeur will progress into a good hitter, he's been off, but I think he'll turn it around.
