I too am surprised pitchers aren't being more aggressive with him, but it's certainly not very rare for major leaguer's to rarely walk.
If Francoeur actually walked even *once* -- well, ok, he'd probably have to walk a few times before people stop talking about it -- then this would not be such an issue. Can you define "rarely walk" please? Like once in a while or never having done it?
Well Soriano looks like the lowest with 31 BB a year being his 3 yr AVG-so what, once every 20 AB roughly?
hey if you want to see the wheels about to come off someone, watch Chacon his second time around the AL
