So, Jeff Francoeur hit his 100th career home run last night…

I hate to spoil the show for you guys, but Jeff Francoeur’s 100th career home run is “The Event.”

Yep, good ol’ Frenchie became the 756th member of the 100-home run club with a solo shot against the Athletics last night. Breaking a lengthy drought, it was his first round-tripper since August 7 and his first in a Rangers’ uniform. In case you aren’t picking up on the (in)significance of this personal milestone, may I suggest reading this and this.

It’s fun to pick on Francoeur and all, but he is 11-for-29 (.379) with one home run, seven RBI and a game-winning hit-by-pitch since joining the Rangers. Don’t get me wrong, he’s still the same exact player he was before — one walk in 32 plate appearances — but he’s a little less worthless when used appropriately.

    EH! Is this more important than Bautista hitting number 52 and 53?

    Yes I know that Bautista hit #51 and #52 last night, but I am thinking ahead towards #53. He needs 2 more walks to reach 100 for the season.

    Is there any way we can be sure it wasn’t Craig that wrote that Deadspin piece?

    We can. Craig would have made a bigger deal of the winning-hit-by-pitch.

    Oh, yeah – and he would also have made an issue of how the Rangers have faltered since Frenchie joined the team. Not blaming Francouer, mind you – but just sayin’ or something like that. You know how ex-lawyers are.
