Jeff Francoeur’s Teammates Prank Him, Again

Isn’t the prank that he has to play for the San Diego Padres now?

Earlier this year, Francoeur’s teammates convinced him that pitcher Jorge Reyes was deaf, which turned into a lovely short film by first baseman Cody Decker. This time around, the gag was less complex. Decker again filmed the payback delivered when Francoeur unwisely used the coaches’ bathroom. With some help from Travis Buck and Carlos Quentin, who was rehabbing in Triple-A at the time, the group turned the cushy bathroom into a cushy prison for Frenchy.

Without spoiling the end, Francoeur made his escape, but not through either of the doors. Bless him.

I wonder if the Padres calling him up today is a prank as well

Yep, a prank on the fans.

#2, the horrifying thing is that vintage Frenchy helps this team.

The truly horrifying thing is that typical Frenchy does as well.

I really hope Frenchy has an insane 200 PAs in him. And then Dayton Moore gives him another 3 year FA deal :-)

This must have been precipitated by Cameron Maybin being suspended for switching prescriptions and not jumping through the many high hoops that MLB has set up for such things. If the Padres still have farm teams who are willing to be affiliated with them it's curious that Frenchy was their best option.

The Padres are trying to pull an Astros, but not broadcasting it to the world.

Unfortunately they have Minaya in the center ring of this two ring circus (third ring is on layaway).

#4 That's what I meant. I wasn't talking peak Frenchy.

EDIT: Peak Frenchy being a pretty good player.

Francoeur also avoids having to wear this on August 3.

To which Frenchy replied, goofy-grinned: "Aw, you guys are just the swellest!!"

Peak Frenchy...That's next to the Matterhorn, right?
