Speaking of old men...

Posted at 3:06 PM on July 13, 2007 by David Zingler

Rickey may be back, but Julio’s out – the Mets designated Julio Franco for assignment yesterday. The 48-year-old hit .200 with 1 homer in 50 at-bats and looks to done, which makes him a perfect candidate for the Twins roster. It actually might not be a bad idea either. Before you laugh, consider that the team uses Jason Tyner and Lew Ford in the DH slot and Franco would be a definite upgrade over them. Plus, it would be an interesting story – every time Franco hits a homerun, he sets a new record. Not even Barry Bonds can say that...yet...
