>Last week, Jeff Francoeur demanded a trade from the New York Mets because he was upset about being platooned in right field with Fernando Martinez.  Francoeur apparently forgot that even Luis Castillo is hitting better than him at this point in the season.

According to OPS+ (I have no idea what that actually is), Francoeur is literally the worst right fielder in baseball this season.  In other words, Jeff ought to be happy that he is being platooned instead of released.  Kids these days!
