Quick hit: Maikel Franco is a pain in the ass

As I said in the title, Maikel Franco is a pain in the ass. He's done well this season batting .319/.368/.604/.972 in 37 games. But against the Yankees, so far, he's batting .750/.800/2.000/2.800 with three home runs, two singles and a double.

If you pitch to him over the plate, HE'S GOING TO HIT THE BALL! Amazing! trumedia_baseball_grid (17)

If you don't, he may actually make an out! trumedia_baseball_grid (18)

So how about we stop throwing him pitches he can hammer and try to keep him off the bases? Maybe?
