The word is that Jeff Francoeur has been signed to a 2 year, $13.5M contract extension. No word yet on the specifics, including the inevitable performance incentives and likely mutual option. Just curious as to how everyone feels about this deal.
Long story short, he was kind of good very early in his career, he followed that with several bad seasons and now he's having an above average season. Without crunching the numbers, he projects to be a below average player in 2012. But maybe he's "figured it out" and made himself into a new player and we'll see more of that the next two years. Personally, I don't think so, but I don't chew tobacco, I'm not grizzled and I've never filled out a scouting report for a MLB organization, so what do I know? Your thoughts?
