Francoeur Traded To Texas; Duda And Mejia Called Up

According to Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger (and several others), Jeff Francoeur has been traded to the Texas Rangers. For whom is not yet known, but that is irrelevant. The Francoeur era is mercifully over, and players who might contribute past 2010 will hopefully have a shot at playing in September. Think Lucas Duda and Nick Evans.

Andy Martino of the Daily News reports that Duda and Jenrry Mejia will be with the club tomorrow. Fine by me.

I know a lot of you love Frenchy, so this is your thread to say goodbye.

...and the boys of the NYPD choir were hauling K-Rod away... as the fans were screaming out: "Oh happy day!"...

Update: The Mets will receive infielder Joaquin Arias from Texas, per MLBTR. Arias turns 26 in three weeks and has a career MLB line of .286/.322/.379 in 242 plate appearances. He has mostly played second base but has experience at shortstop and third base.
