YearComment
2007 On the list of in-season apocalyptic events that tell you it`s time to start thinking about next year, calling up Wayne Franklin has to rank pretty close to the top.
2005 The cavalcade of forgettable relievers rolls on! After yielding an insane 36 homers in 194.2 innings in '03, Franklin gave up cookies at an ever higher rate last year, surrendering 11 in 50.2 frames. You see enough balls land near the giant Coke bottle, and you'd start thinking about $21 million for Armando Benitez too. Non-tendered, then re-signed.
2002 There are three kinds of players for whom time has almost no meaning: catchers, knuckleballers, and left-handed relievers. Like Taoists, all they have to do in order to be rewarded is exist. It's been scientifically proven that if you lock an empty room, a year later you'll find a left-handed reliever infestation. Feed them, and they’ll live in the room over the garage until they’re 38, at which point Tony LaRussa might take them off of your hands.
2001 The Astros have an acute need for left-handed relief, and Wayne Franklin is probably their best in-house option. He was not terribly effective last season, but he had a big 1999 and his ability to retire left-handed hitters makes him a weapon. He'll be up and down in 2001, pitching fairly well but always just a couple bad pitches from New Orleans.
2000 No eyebrows were raised when Franklin, a 25-year-old who had never pitched above high-A ball, was taken in the minor-league Rule 5 draft from the Dodgers. I hope the scout who recommended the move got a raise, because Franklin was six kinds of unhittable in the Texas League last year. Trever Miller didn’t cut it as the Astros’ left-handed setup man, so expect Franklin to get every opportunity to make the major-league roster in April.
