    While we hope that Francoeur’s homer was a sign, he did hit a bad pitch by Wainwright and looked silly in first at-bat. I wouldn’t want Francoeur in big stop anytime soon, but I’m encouraged that he hit well last season although the Mets were out of it.

    I don’t see NY getting much for him in a trade and Mets can’t afford to deal him since there’s no suitable replacement
