DateQuestionAnswer
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)There are a lot of veterans in the NRIs. Where do you see Julio Franco in his quest to play as a pentagenarian?
(patsen29 from Toronto)
Done. He might still be able to catch up to the odd offering from a lefty, but he's a pinch-hitter in a game that doesn't really reserve roster space for the type any more. He could do it if he popped into the wayback machine to the '80s, when guys like Steve Braun and le grand Orange and Greg Gross and Harry Spilman were on rosters, but then either he wouldn't be a pentagenarian any more, or he could run into himself and blow a hole in the space-time continuum or something.
