Manuel: "I’ve heard people say he got to play in Cleveland. He didn’t get no 350, 450 at bats or anything like that. He’s never done that. So this is a chance for him to get to play. Starting off, he’s going to get a good chance to play, what you call a bona fide chance." In 2008, Francisco had 447 AB's for Cleveland, starting 71 games in left field and 27 more in right (98 total OF starts). His OPS was .770 on the season. In 2009, he tallied 405 AB's between the Phillies and Indians with a .779 OPS for the year. He started 51 games in LF, 37 in CF, and 13 in RF, totalling 101 starts in the outfield. So yes, Charlie, he has done this before. Turns out he wasn't bad at it, either.
