A banner for Jeffy

If you’re in the Atlanta area, you have an assignment this afternoon:

He’s no longer a Brave, but Jeff Francoeur will always be a Gwinnettian. So to wish the Parkview grad luck in his move to the New York Mets after Friday’s trade, the Daily Post will have a banner available for fans to sign.

The banner can be signed beginning at noon on Wednesday at the Daily Post’s main lobby. Our office is located at 725 Old Norcross Rd. in Lawrenceville. Fans can also stop by to sign from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursday.

The banner will be presented to Francoeur before Thursday’s game between the Braves and Mets.

The challenge is to write something utterly insulting about Francoeur while keeping it clean and subtle enough to not cause someone to erase it. Something that goes unnoticed until one day, years from now, the people up in Cooperstown — who will no doubt be sifting through these kinds of things in the runup to Jeffy’s induction — get a little laugh out of it.

If you sign it, please share your story with the rest of us.

I’ve been thinking about it.  I think we need something that will spell out an acronym—say, JEFFY SUCKS—if you use the first letter of every word.

I’m just one county away from Gwinnett (and the counties are extra-small here in Georgia), so maybe I should bop on over.  How about “We still love you, Jeff F4anc000r!”

Stay off the 7 train- the ghost of John Rocker still prowls there.

Sory I won’t be able to make it to Lawrenceville, Craig.  But I’m very surprised the fans visiting the Gwinnett Post’s site have voted 59% to 41% in favor of the trade.  Probably mostly ShysterBall readers tipping the scales.

Baseball is a game where if you fail 7 out of 10 times, they put you in the Hall of Fame.  Or in your case, 691 out of 1000.
