Few athletes are capable of inspiring the vitriol that Jeff Francoeur receives from serious baseball fans. I think it’s rooted in a comment he made to the media five years ago, when he justified his less than patient approach at the plate by explaining that walks just don’t matter to him, and that he’d never collect 100 free passes in a season anyway, so he might as well swing away. I’m sure he’s grown since then, but that’s not about to stop me from laughing at this.
