Hard to believe he's fallen so far. He was the toast of Atlanta when he first came into the league. I actually bought my Braves fan wife a Francoeur autographed baseball for Christmas one year. We still have it.

I guess I'd increase the value by erasing his signature.

That's why guys like Frenchy are "sunk costs" -- you have to pay him whether he's on the roster or not. The money basically is already spent, whether he performs or not; you can't save any by cutting him.
Depends if they pick him up off waivers or wait til he clears waivers. If they pick him up off waivers they get his contract and each team will pay the pro rated portion he served for them, I believe.

I was assuming he would clear waivers easily.

For the Yankees the salary would just be a drop in the bucket. I doubt they would go after Frenchy though.

I watched Moneyball a couple weeks back and when Bean and his accountant dude was pulling up stats on players I had to do a rewind it showed Francour's
name in it.
He has a movie claim to fame you could say.

Re-signing him was asinine, but at least Moore has grown tired of chasing his tail. Our GM has proven time and again that he's stupid, but he generally proves that he's not crazy, too.

And he hasn't been playing 2B in Omaha for roughly the last month why...?

This is classic Dayton Moore stupidity, but whatever.
