Julio Franco Lives

To my utter astonishment, the Atlanta Braves have signed Julio Franco, the 49 year-old pinch-(not)-hitter whom the Mets just released. Franco was hitting .200 for the Mets and is too old to tie his own shoe laces never mind play the field. He is the only major leaguer who is a full-fledged member of AARP.

It must be that the Braves are nostalgic for the only player who has played for the Boston Braves, the Milwaukee Braves and now the Atlanta Braves.

    Do you mean Eddie Matthews, who I believe played for all three? Becasue Julio wasn't born when they played in Boston.

    He was joking, I guess you're not familiar with MoC's humor.

    Is Julio really Ted Turner's father?

    And...Franco hits an RBI single in his first game as a Brave. Bad signing.
