Royals right fielder Jeff Francoeur said he's saddened by Oakland's tiny crowds and hopes the city will get a new ballpark to house the A's.For now, Francoeur is perfectly fine with the fans who do show up. Wednesday, he resumed a love affair with fans beyond the right-field wall and had 20 pizzas delivered to section 149."They're diehards," Francoeur said. "Those are the people you feel bad for with all the stuff that's going on right now - whether they're going to move or not. Those are the fans who obviously love coming out and being a part of it."Francoeur said he was razzed by A's fans two seasons ago and engaged in friendly back-and-forth, and somehow the discussion turned to bacon. So last year, he tossed a ball wrapped in a $100 bill to the fans, suggesting they buy bacon and beer.Tuesday, fans presented Francoeur a green T-shirt with the words "Second Annual Bacon Fest Sponsored by Jeff Francoeur." They called it Bacon Tuesday, and Francoeur is looking forward to 2013, saying, "I told them I'll come out early and hang out with them in the parking lot and eat bacon."He added, "Baseball to me is fun. We can take it too seriously sometimes. It's nights like last night that makes it a lot of fun to play this game."
Pretty awesome. I remember heckling the crap out of Francouer when he was the Braves during Zimmermann's debut when there was almost no one at the stadium because of the weather. When running to second one inning he trip and face planted in the mud and I let him have it next time he was in RF. He was a good sport about it and acknowledged the heckling with a good humored smile.
Not too many are like that. I never understood the hate that was aimed at him specifically but whatever.I saw a lot of fans trying to engage Werth yesterday but he wasn't having any of that crap. Can't say I blame him though. He'll probably have his own version of what Francoeur is doing and call it "The Annual Werth Bangs Your Wife" so start lining up.
Francoeur got heckled so bad when he was on the Mets playing at Nationals Park. Didn't seem to mind it though.GOOD GUY JEFF FRANCOEUR.

ahhh, good ole google(Image removed from quote.)poor guy lol
Remember when he clearly missed the fly ball in RF? good times
But who's going to make him a shirt for that? I also think I saw him turn around and wave to the people in the lower RF area but I could have been mistaken.
I'll heckle any opponent when I sit in the outfield. Though I do remember yelling some stuff at Wily Taveras a few years back when he was with the Reds and later in the game he tried to pull off a covert middle finger.
You were mistaken. Some of the people that were waving at him were under the impression that he kept looking back at them but he was actually looking at the giant scoreboard. He was doing it practically on every pitch. Maybe he was keeping track of pitch speed.
Nah, the side boards died during the middle of the game and were out till the late innings. He was probably looking up for the count/outs.

Adam Dunn had some of the better and more funny responses back in the day when he was playing RF for us.
