More evidence the Braves are trying to deal Jeff Francoeur

Here is a tidbit from the Miami Herald via MLBTR:

The Marlins rejected Atlanta's offer of outfielder Jeff Francoeur for Cody Ross before the Braves acquired Pittsburgh's Nate McLouth.

Here is a comparison of their stats (Ross has 14BB and 50K):


G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS AVG OBP SLG
2009 - Cody Ross 61 226 34 1 18 0 10 39 0 0 3 1 .270 .320 .482


G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS AVG OBP SLG
2009 - Jeff Francoeur 61 232 27 58 6 2 4 29 10 34 3 1 .250 .282 .345


Gosh, I wonder why the Marlins turned that down? I think we're going to hear many more rumors of the Braves trying to get something for Jeff Francoeur, and perhaps even this trade will be revisited in some fashion. I've said it before, and I'll repeat it here, I don't think the Braves finish this season with Jeff Francoeur on the team.
