I'm not sure how I missed this, but thanks to Mac Thomason of BravesJournal, it didn't slip by me completely. Jeff Francoeur provides pure goodness from his press conference introducing him to the Royals. The article was via the Kansas City Star.â†µ
Francoeur: "When I was 21 years old, I had mentors like John Smoltz and Chipper Jones, guys that showed me how to do it," said Francoeur, who understands the expectations that come with being a big-time prospect. "Here, you’ve got a lot of 21- or 22-year-old guys who are ready to come up and be stars for years. Hopefully I can help them out."â†µ
Do I really have to provide any commentary to follow this? I don't think so either.â†µ
