Why isn’t Ruf getting a real shot from the Phillies?

Is he really suggesting Grady Sizemore and Jeff Francoeur aren’t long-term solutions in Philly?

Phillies newcomer Francoeur becoming Howard’s biggest fan

“It seems like every time I look at him, he’s got a few guys around him,” manager Ryne Sandberg said of Francoeur. “I think there’s a good reason behind that. Players tend to go to him.”

Francoeur and Howard have been nearly inseparable during the first week of camp.

Their lockers are next to each other. They were in the same, three-man group, with infielder Andres Blanco, when hitters faced live pitching Friday. They are in the same, six-man team under Charlie Manuel’s guidance in the team’s carefully crafted hitting groups this spring.

The Phillies signed Francoeur to a minor league contract this winter because they think he has the chance to make their major league club as a much-needed righthanded bench bat. But like Manuel, he’s also someone with a history with Howard - they played against each other as NL East foes for years - and someone with an unwavering positive outlook, too.

He’s baaa-aaack!
