Time for a contest. I’m looking for a joke. The beginning of this joke must be: “What’s the difference between Jeff Francoeur and ________?” The blank may be filled by a person, place, thing, concept — whatever.

In all two-strike counts, he’s hitting .178/.287/.280. … Continue reading “KJ – The Splits”
