    He loves the fans out there. He also did the same for the "Bacon Tuesday" crowd in RF in Oakland.

    I love standing on the party deck in RF at Kauffman. Frenchy is one of those reasons. Whenever we cheer for him he looks back and waves. One of the coolest guys in the MLB.

    He felt sorry for the Royals fan. I'd need a lot of beer to sit and watch them play.

    I feel like between the Cyclones, Royals, and Chiefs I have a valid excuse for heavy drinking.

    Re: Francoeur seems like one cool dude!

    I haven't heard much bad about Frenchy. Word was that at his first All-Star appearance (as a rookie I think), he heard A-Rod chastising a club house boy for not getting his request correct. Jeff spoke up from across the locker room (I'll emphasize as a rookie again) telling A-Rod to give him a break/ relax. And then proceeded to collect autographs from other players on a bat and give it to the kid. Apparently this went over pretty well with the other All-Stars not nicknamed A-Rod.

    It was a while ago, so the details may be a bit off - but that was the gist of it.
