Remember that time Jeff Francoeur signed a baseball, wrapped a $100 bill around it and tossed up to the fans with a message telling them that the pizza was on him?  Yeah, he did it again, this time for beer.

Yeah, that’s a great way for people to cut you some slack over a .245/.290/.330 line.

        With the new screen name, now we can let you into the family section of this here entity run by an all day pajama wearing blogger.

        Big Jackie Robinson fan, eh?

    I hope he does this at the Royals/Cardinals game in June, I’ve got decent seats for it and could possibly receive a ball like this, I will be on the left field side!

    Come back to the Braves, dude.
    Words I never thought I would say.

      Words I will continue not to say.

        Not even for a Benjy? 😉
        In all seriousness, no. Stay in KC, Frenchy.

        Words that will NEVER be said.

    Here’s what baseball needs to do:

    Grant an exception to the performance enhancing drugs policy to Jeff Francoeur.

    One of two things happens:

    1) He becomes an amazing ballplayer thanks to juicing up, and everyone is happy that such a great guy is such a great player


    2) We learn that drugs don’t turn poor players into supermen, and we’ve got a great datapoint we can use to determine the actual impact of drugs on ballplayers.

    Either way, everybody wins.

    Gotta love that guy…so long as he’s not on YOUR team.

    That’s awesome.

    Dear God, what would Pujols have to throw up to the fans to make up for his pathetic showing so far? Can you wrap a sports car around a baseball?

    Francoeur, immediately moves up to #1 again on the “guy who gets it” list.

      Adam Wainwright’s pickup truck? again…

      I think we need to engineer an Aston Martin to wrap around a baseball and test this theory.

    • Chip Caray's Eyebrows - May 4, 2012 at 5:17 PM

      I’m not sure I understand what Albert Pujols has to do with any of this.

    • foreverchipper10 - May 4, 2012 at 6:20 PM

      A home run ball.

    Ever think you’d write an article with that title, Craig?

  8. stex52 - May 4, 2012 at 5:39 PM

    Only written that way because he lacks a sarcasm font. Or maybe he can handle it better when Jeff is not a Brave.

    I will trade his offensive line for his defense every day!
