The Coop has never been a fan of Ryan Church. Heck, the only GOOD thing that came out of the stupid ass trade that brought him here was me seeing Brian Schneider's hot butt in a tight uniform.
But I have to say Ryan Church has grown on me as of late. I guess because, well, on a team of crap, something has to stick to the wall. I guess Church has stuck to the wall and I didn't - not so much "like" him - but more tolerated his presence.
But a straight-up trade for JEFF FRANCOEUR for Church? With his whopping .250 BA and 5 HRs? Oh yes, THAT is the crap-for-crap deal we've been waiting for.
I don't know whether to break dance or shoot myself in the foot. Frenchy for Churchy? Really, Omar? Really? Gosh you must really love waving the white flag right before All-Star Break.
I guess I give too much credit for Omar Minaya these days. But seriously - what is the point of this deal? The fact was, Jeff Francoeur was good for one month nearly five years ago. He's awful. Do we get marginally better D from him? Probably not.
I mean, if we were gonna trade Church, why trade him for a guy just like him? Why not keep him?
I just don't get it. This is a dumb-ass deal.
