JEFF FRANCOEUR RUMORS

Watch Jeff Francoeur incite bench clearing because Phillies batters are slow to bat

Hansel Robles put it simply: The batter was in the box, the umpire pointed at him to pitch, so he pitched.— Jared Diamond (@jareddiamond) August 26, 2015But...basically it now seems umpires have the power to say a pitch doesn't count. @AdamRubinESPN Umpires hand not raised, Ruf in the box. Don't blame Robles ... he did nothing wrong.— Michael Pruser (@ProspectCincy) August 26...

Phillies walk off on Francoeur’s home run

On a day where the Phillies celebrated Christmas in July, Jeff Francoeur gave the fans a present in the form of a walk-off  two-run home run. In the process, he kept his team hot with an 8-7 win over the Marlins, completing the team’s first sweep since mid May. “Hitting season,” as former manager Charlie Manuel used to call it, was in full effect as the two clubs combined...

Jeff Francoeur makes one of the worst throws in history

In one play Sunday afternoon, Jeff Francoeur just about summed up the Philadelphia Phillies’ entire season. It’s been a rough season for the Phillies who are among baseball’s worst teams, and it must be even worse for a veteran like Francoeur, a once can’t-miss prospect who’s bounced around baseball looking for work. On Sunday, Francoeur’s season might have hit rock...

Jeff Francoeur and Non-Pitchers Pitching In the Game Today

There seems to be an urge to consider Jeff Francoeur‘s Tuesday pitching appearance symbolic. Francoeur’s an outfielder called on to pitch, and he went two innings in a blowout because the bullpen phone was off the hook, and at one point he had to reassure a coach on the field he still had something left […]

Phillies bullpen phone is left off hook during brutal game

It was a wild scene at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Tuesday. After all, how often do you see a team mash 8 home runs AND witness an outfielder throw 43 pitches in the same game? But that’s exactly what went down during the Baltimore Orioles’ 19-3 throttling of the Philadelphia Phillies. The eight...Read More The post Phillies bullpen phone is left off hook and Jeff Francoeur...

Jeff Francoeur threw *two* innings for the Phillies on Sunday

Just how bad are things going for the Philadelphia Phillies right now? During Tuesday’s 19-3 thrashing at the hands of the Baltimore Orioles, they brought Jeff Francoeur to the mound. But Frenchy didn’t just pitch one inning – Ryne Sandberg and company let him throw TWO innings. It seems like Sandberg wanted to pull Francoeur before the end of the eighth inning, but pitching...

Jeff Francoeur is still a blast to watch

Jeff Francoeur is a bad baseball player on a bad baseball team. Now 31, the days of “The Natural” are long over. Francoeur has turned into a journeyman since the Braves dumped him onto the Mets in 2009 for Ryan Church, playing for the Mets, Rangers, Royals, Giants, Padres, and Phillies in the majors over the past six seasons. He hasn’t played in as many as 100 games with...

WATCH: Jeff Francoeur again victimized by brilliant prank

Back in April, the El Paso Chihuahuas pranked teammate Jeff Francoeur, convincing him that a teammate was deaf. In honor of Francoeur’s promotion to the major league today, Cody Decker of the Chihuahuas released another prank video, in which the team locks Francoeur in the bathroom. I won’t spoil the conclusion, but it’s pretty fantastic. Poor Jeff. Hopefully the Padres let...

Jeff Francoeur doing it all for Triple-A team

Jeff Francoeur is proving to be a regular “Jack of All Trades” for the San Diego Padres Triple-A affiliate El Paso Chihuahuas. Not only is the outfielder the perfect prank victim, but with a Gold Glove and World Series experience, he’s also got some pretty solid Major League credentials.  Oh, yeah…he’s also proving to be a rally killer on the mound. Sunday night, “Frenchy”...

WATCH: Jeff Francoeur victim of great prank by teammates

Clubhouse pranks are as much of a part of baseball as peanuts and Cracker Jack and as far as this one goes…it’s a winner. Late in Spring Training, veteran Jeff Francoeur was released by the Cleveland Indians and, just days later, signed by the San Diego Padres and assigned to the team’s Triple-A affiliate in El Paso.  Up until recently, the outfielder’s teammates had him...
