For Met fans there seems to be no in between when it comes to Jeff Francoeur.  He has, thus far this year, defined the expression ‘feast or famine’.  Public opinion among the Met faithfuls ranges from those who can’t wait till Carlos Beltran returns to those who are filling out their all-star ballot and penning Frenchy’s name.  To be fair to both sides, there have been times throughout the year where you can make serious arguments for either side and even the Zilla writers are divided on what to truly believe when it comes to Jeff Francoeur.

Streaking Frenchy Finding His Way by Vinny Cartiglia

What a difference a week makes, not only for the Mets but Jeff Francoeur.  As Jeff  said in his post game interview this past Sunday:

Baseball is a funny game like I said, two weeks ago I couldn't hit water if I fell out of a boat and right now the baseball looks great coming in.

Francoeur wasn't lying.  Prior to his 10 game hit-streak, which was extended when he went 2-4 with a game-tying 3 run HR on Sunday, he was 18 for 123 (.146 AVG).  During the last 10 games, however, he is streaking to the tune of 18 for 36 (.500 AVG) with 8 RBI (that’s the kind of streaking even Frank the Tank would be proud of).  TO READ THE REST OF THIS ARTICLE CLICK HERE:
