In related news, Kevin Burkhardt sent the most texts tonight since the Kris Allen vs Adam Lambert final on American Idol. I'll stop talking about Francoeur when everyone else does. Hopefully it will die down, and people will no longer accuse us of disliking Francoeur, human being, as opposed to Francoeur, baseball player.

But don't go bitching and moaning about another fourth place finish, thanks in no small part to the Mets receiving the worst offensive right field production in the league.
The Metsies look to avoid the sweep Thursday night, featuring a battle of aces: Johan Santana vs Tim Hudson.
