White Sox-Giants Swap Confirmed: You can't always get what you want, but sometimes you find a deal anyway. The Baseball News Network is reporting that Chicago and San Francisco have made a swap with 35-year-old first baseman Julio Franco being shipped to the Giants and in return the White Sox would get 31-year-old right fielder Darryl Strawberry. The San Francisco general manager said the two sides were close to a blockbuster trade before agreeing upon a smaller scale transaction. "This is just a bit of housekeeping compared to what we wanted to do," he said. "I won't name names, but the potential deal we were close to making would have certainly grabbed some headlines." A source inside the Chicago organization said the two sides might not be done dealing, and another transaction could be in the works. In his 1546-game career Franco is batting .300 with 1784 hits, 100 home runs, 892 runs scored and 763 RBIs. Lifetime in 1323 games Strawberry is batting .259 with 290 home runs and 869 RBIs.

Shawn Green, Aaron Sele, Kenny Lofton, Julio Franco, David Wells, Steve Finley, Sandy Alomar Jr.All received votes for the hall of fame this year..This is embarrassing and the people who casted the votes for these players should no longer be allwoed to vote, as they clearly are not taking it seriously in any respect. Baseball is a game prided on his history, stats, and representation in its blessed hall of fame. The fact that someone is allowed to vote and casts votes for players of this calibur is a slap in the face to all of us baseball fans.
Let me get this straight...there were people who voted for Shawn Green, Julio Franco and Aaron Sele, but Biggio and Morris couldn't get 75%?
It's too bad the BBWAA couldn't figure out that Biggio was a Worthy HOF candidate in 2013. But what I want to know is Who and why some of them voted for Aaron Sele, Shawn Greene, Steve Finley, David Wells, Julio Franco, Sandy Alomar and Bernie Williams. All solid MLB players who earned their salaries,but not HOF material.
Baseball writers should not be anywhere close to involved with the voting of the Hall of Fame, Aaron Sele got a vote, Sandy Alomar Jr got 18 Julio Franco got 6 votes. *** Piazza did not get in? Im just saying that if Greg Maddax does not get 100% of the vote next year something is seriously wrong. Also Frank Thomas, Biggio and Piazza better get in next year also. No reason why they got snubbed. Paul Parsons
With Part 3 (his 14 best candidates) yet to come. If I had a vote, I could see myself marking down Julio Franco and Lee Smith's names.
In 06 with Julio Franco. This picture means alot to me actually.
Can't believe Julio Cesar must be one big time draw for the guy! he'll make friends with Franco DiSanto!
Julio Franco, on the ballot for the first time, faced all but one p on the -2004- ballot.
