Jeff Francoeur Spring Training Clip

Here's a clip of a Jeff Francoeur at-bat this spring courtesy of 'GG' at MySpace. I heard a lot about Francoeur's new stance, so I was expecting some kind of dramatic new look, but it seems like he just widened his stance and simplified his upper and lower body movements. He maintained a 1:1 walk to strikeout rate this spring, and he says he was getting into more 2-0 counts than last year, which I think is probably due to keeping his head still and seeing the ball longer. I'm rooting for Jeff this year more than any other Braves player and would love to see him have a big season. Thanks for the clip GG, and good luck in '09 Jeff!
