“Julio Franco”:http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/profile?statsId=3001 just took Randy Johnson into the pool for a two-run homer. Mets lead, 3-zip in the second.
When you consider the value of a bench player, maybe he can be the difference in three or four wins a year. Maybe. Franco has already been directly responsible for three wins this year. Tonight could be the fourth. So far, they’ve had a pretty good return on their Franco investment.
