Garrett Jones' right field platoon partner...Jeff Francoeur???


Just saw that Jeff Francoeur became a free agent.  He might make a good platoon partner in right field for Garrett Jones, as they mention that Jeff Francoeur has struggled against righties.  Also plays good defense.  I know that the bat seems a bit inconsistent (either very good or not so good).  But I like the power numbers, he doesn't strike out a whole lot, and he might be very well served by being in a straight platoon situation.  He's got a career .299 average lifetime against lefties (including a .481 slugging pct & .824 OPS). (If I'm Neal Huntington, I'm already on the phone with his agent).   Do we have a winner??
