Carter is almost certainly better, and actually strikes me as a decent alternative in right field, should Jeff Francoeur continue hitting like he has (.143/.200/.221 in his last 22 games). Great glove or not, that isn’t close to adequate for the position, unless the position is pitcher.Jeff Francoeur is having an epic struggle at the plate. The odds of him ever developing into a serviceable corner outfield bat seem slim to none. So what are Jeff Francoeur's strengths? And how do we best leverage them?
Ridiculous cannon for a throwing arm.
Good, positive attitude and clubhouse demeanor.
Can hit a little bit.
Would he really be the world's worst candidate for a two-way player type position? Could he throw hard off a mound? Could be throw strikes? I have no idea -- but I'd love to find out.
