Jeff Francoeur signing overflow thread

The contract terms are in. 1 year for $2.5M with some kind of incentives which could push it up another $500K. And there is a mutual option for 2012 at $3M $4M.

After something like 800 comments, the original thread is full, and full of lots of angst, vitriol and snark. But I think that's appropriate. Sure over the last three years, Jeff Francoeur -- as a full-time player -- has fewer WAR than Mitch Maier -- as a part-time player, but I'm sure Frenchy has massive intangibles of which we can only dream. Oh well, it has been hours since we found out about it, so now that we've taken a breath, does the signing look any better?
