Franco's Career Over
The Mets have designated 48-year old utility-man Julio Franco today, recalling outfielder Lastings Millege from AAA. The move was made easier as the Mets got a new hitting coach in Rickey Henderson, replacing Franco's coaching jobs in the clubhouse. Franco had 2,576 career hits with 173 HR's and 1,186 RBI's.
