Rob Manfred rejects idea that rise in home runs is due to PEDs, ball changes

No one in baseball, including Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred, isn’t aware of the spike in home runs throughout the first half of the 2016 season. However, given baseball’s recent history with performance enhancing drugs, one’s mind would be forgiven for wondering if PEDs had anything to do with the sudden rise in homers this season. Manfred, addressing the...

Yasiel Puig or Jeff Francoeur?

Not long ago, we had a little company trip to New York, and while we were there we swung through the MLBAM offices. As part of that visit, we had a chance to go on the Statcast Podcast with Mike Petriello and Matt Meyers. At one point, in talking with them, I blurted out Jeff Francoeur as a player comp for Yasiel Puig. I hadn’t thought about it much, in the way I usually don...

Jeff Francoeur makes one of the worst throws in history

By Mike Cole 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.

Phillies bullpen phone is left off hook during brutal game

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.
