Includes the Year of Kolb, the Debut of Jeffy, and far too much Reitsma. There’s about a month’s gap where the posts are missing in my archives, I don’t know why.
ANNOUNCER: From Kansas City, it’s the Jeff Francoeur show, starring Jeff Francoeur! I’m your announcer, Melky Cabrera, and tonight, Jeff’s guests are: Miley Cyrus! Verne Troyer! And The Baseball Project! And now, stand and cheer, here’s Jeffy! [AUDIENCE GIVES FIVE MINUTE STANDING OVATION] Jeff Francoeur: Thanks, thanks everybody.

I don’t really have anything to say. December is always a rough time if the Braves aren’t active. Discussion question: If Jeff Francoeur were a TV show, what TV show would he be? I say “Ally McBeal.”
I really do have a lot to be thankful for, even if I don’t always recognize it. Including you guys — thanks. And now, Jeff Francoeur riding a giant turkey.
