"Look for outfielder Jeff Francoeur to get extended playing time over the next several days in an attempt to jump-start his nonproductive bat. A similar extra-work approach succeeded with Alex Gordon and Chris Getz. "Now, we’ll get (Francoeur) going," Yost said. "He’ll be all right. His swing is fine. It’s just timing. I don’t have any concerns with him." Francoeur is mired in a zero-for-20 skid after going hitless Friday in four at-bats. He is four for 34 overall." MY TAKE: there is nothing in here about why we ALL should be worried about this, even though it is just spring training, because we all feared Frenchy production of this nature; furthermore, did it REALLY "work" with Chris Getz? As if he now can hit. C'mon.
