But while I didn't find the song titles via a web search, I did come across this interview, which describes Francoeur's love of country music:

Q – What is one thing that most people don’t know about Jeff Francouer?
“That I want to be a country music singer worse than you could ever imagine. I would actually give up my baseball talent to be a country music singer and most people don’t know that.”
It was at this point that he told me about one of his habits when he is out in the outfield.

- Fool-Hearted Memory
- A Fire I Can't Put Out
- Let's Fall to Pieces Together
- Famous Last Words of a Fool
- I Cross My Heart
- I'd Like to Have That One Back
- Today My World Slipped Away
- We Really Shouldn't Be Doing This
- The Chill of An Early Fall
- I've Come to Expect It From You
Come to think of it, country music and the Mets have a lot in common - misery!
And there is one Strait song that best fits how the team - and their fans - must feel right now: "I Hate Everything."
