2009 Topps Nate McLouth UH326 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

My wife and I went to a lot of Braves games in 2009. She’s not a huge fan, but she’s also not NOT a fan, if that makes sense. Her favorite player was Frenchy, and after he was dealt to the Mets, she needed a new favorite player and she chose … Nate McLouth. Yes, Nate McLouth. Not to mock my wife, but come on.

Well, according to their bWAR, Nate McLouth and Jeff Francouer ended up with similar careers. They even both won golden gloves that they most assuredly did not deserve. I think my wife got out of the having a favorite player game after McLouth. That was a good move on her part.
