Did you ever watch recent Royal Jeff Francoeur's lack of development and inability to understand what a strike zone is and think to yourself: how dumb is this guy?
That's right. His new AAA team mates in the Padres' system convinced him that Chihuahuas pitcher Jorge Reyes was deaf, and let the ruse last for an entire month. Frenchy never caught on, despite obvious signs, like the catcher talking to the pitcher with his glove over his mouth. H/T to Deadspin. http://deadspin.com/jeff-francoeurs-teammates-pulled-a-hilarious-month-lon-1562734995
