Shock of Shocks (Jeff Francoeur Edition)

by Jason Epstein

Every spring, we are told that this year will be different for genial right fielder Jeff Francoeur.

Francoeur got off to a deceivingly hot start in April.

However, here is Frenchy’s AVG/OBP/SLG line for May: .233/.287/.388

And here is his line over the past four weeks: 216/.262/.320

Morale of the story: A bright smile and a couple of “Aw, shucks!” still go a long way with the beat writers.
