Ô Cameron, Berceau de nos Ancêtres (Frenchy style)
Francoeur and Cabrera, two players who have re-invented themselves and now team with Alex Gordon to form one of the better outfields anywhere in baseball, seem thrilled to be in Kansas City.
And frankly, they’ve both been terrific.
Cabrera is hitting .304, with 13 home runs and 61 RBIs. Francoeur’s numbers are .272, 14 and 62. The Royals have played 108 games, exactly two-thirds of their 162-game schedule – putting Cabrera and Francoeur each on pace for the neighborhood of 20 homers and 90-something runs batted in.
Considering these two guys are earning $3.75 million COMBINED, those are eye-popping numbers.
...“I understand the business side of it,” Francoeur said, “but I’m not even close to 30 – and Melky isn’t, either. Obviously, the Royals want to build for the future, but if we prove we can produce at a high enough level, why can’t we be part of that?
“It’s not like we have giant contracts. I think we’ve proven we can help this team win a championship, and do it soon.”
