"I know that Chipper always told me he never played here before," Francoeur said. "Besides the All-Star Game, in a regular season game he's never played here. It is weird because, when I was with Atlanta, we'd gone so many different places, but never came here."
Francoeur will be spending some of Monday's off-day with catcher Brian McCann, an Atlanta-area neighbor.
"It's always good to see those guys and me and Brian have played with each other and against each other since we were 10 years old, so I'm looking forward to it," Francoeur said. "They've got the off-day tomorrow, too, so we're going to hang out. It's a good chance to see each other."
