Francoeur's Back

Turns out it was only a three-day demotion. I'm sure he's all fixed now.

He is Exhibit A, B, C and D for why the "book" in baseball is outdated.

If you're not performing, you go to the minor leagues. Sure, a lengthy explanation would be nice, but when your boss tells you that your performance does not meet expectations and instead of firing you sends you somewhere to fix your problems, you shut up and go.

I thought he had to stay in the minors for at least 10 days. The article doesn't explain how they got around that. Any idea?

From ajc.com: "The injuries did clear a roster spot for him. A player can return within 10 days from the minor leagues if he's replacing an injured player on the roster. The Braves disabled three players on Sunday night, pitchers Jeff Bennett and Manny Acosta and utlity man Omar Infante."

smooth maneuvering, but he's NOT actually replacing one of them...

There's nothing smooth about it. He's replacing one of them on the roster (as in, he's 1 of 25 guys), and that's all the rule requires.

Not sure that's going to help his, um, issues much.
