The mechanical flaw Stairs found that could get Maikel Franco on track | PhillyVoice

I’ve read other articles about his change in approach. At some point, though, it needs to show up in his regular batting line.

“I just have one month here, less than 50 games,” Franco said Saturday. “We’ve got a long way to go, 4 1/2 months. Everything is going to change. I don’t have to worry about where my average is right now and what I have to do, the only thing I have to do is get my rhythm back, get my confidence back, and if I do all of that, everything is going to be alright.”

It should be linked on Facebook with a headline implying Mike Schmidt is dead.

Philly Voice isn't bad, but it is click-baitey.

Is Maikel Franco now the best living Phillie hitter?
