What do I think of the Giants signing Jeff Francoeur?

I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t see it having a major impact.  I was wrong, after all, about Pat Burrell.

Francoeur has had a lot of bad years and only one good one over the last half-decade or so.  He’s decent against left-handed pitching only.  He’s got mediocre defense.  I don’t see him catching the Giants magic that guys like Pat Burrell and Cody Ross had in the past.

At this point, I’m hoping for slightly better play, putting a charge in Andres Torres to improve his game, and not making me have to spell his name very often.  That’s it.
