Braves announcer Joe Simpson tonight called the trade of Jeff Francoeur “a punch in the gut.” Add to that what my wife said: “Sometimes I hate this game.” That about sums it up for me, too.
In addition to my years of photographing Francoeur, I’ve photographed new Brave Ryan Church several times in the majors, too, including at Washington and here at Spring Training this year.
