    He's not necessarily the fourth outfielder. He turned into a high-quality one because of the players the Mets have (when healthy). He'll do more than replace Francoeur and it'll be good for him to get out of Citi Field. Just don't expect too much of an increase in slugging. He will walk more, though. Lots more.

    This trade is funny to me more than anything. Out of all teams, the Mets?

    I do notice that Citi Field has killed his batting this year:

    111 PA, .216/.297/.278, 3 2B, 1 HR, 10 RBI

    I hope Jeff does well in New York, but... well, I don't think that's likely.

    Ryan Church will take some walks, but his slugging seems to have regressed since 2006. Thankfully, this year has a lot to do with Citi Field. We should see him do well in Atlanta.
