Jeff Francoeur Gets Got Once Again

Pat Murphy serves as co-conspirator in epic minor-league prank

It's fair to say that Pat Murphy would never have been described as "conventional" during his successful but poorly ended run as Arizona State's head baseball coach. And nothing's changed now that he's managing the Triple-A team for the San Diego Padres. Murphy has a reputation as a prankster, and that's played well in connection with one of his players...

Frenchy gets massively punked by his Triple-A teammates

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Jeff Francoeur doesn't tote quite the stick he had three years ago, but at least he's hung on to his sense of humor. Frenchy remains one of Organized Baseball's nice guys. Trouble is, when you're one of baseball's nice guys, there's a good chance you might get ... well, punked. And he was. Oh, was he ever. The former Kansas City Royals...

Cody Decker Presents: “On Jeff Ears”

Most of us who have played some kind of sport are familiar with hazing new teammates. It’s typically a one-shot gig: telling them the new guy has to fill the water cooler, or saying that new players have to rake the infield, or even pretending that tomorrow’s game has been moved to some other day. It’s a harmless, albeit really fun, quick gag. But have you ever played a joke...

The San Diego Padres are struggling at the big league level, no doubt. The hope for the Friar Faithful, however, has been in its future due to the strength of the system.
