Perhaps you’ve been alerted to the fact that the Blue Jays’ home series with the Phillies is being shifted from Toronto to Citizens Bank Park in Philly because of fears of violence due to the G-20 Summit in Toronto the weekend of June 25-27.
Jeff Francoeur heard about it, and he was none to pleased with the prospect of the Phillies inheriting three more home games.
“That’s just bull—-,” Francoeur said. “That’s not really fair. That’s just not fair.”
The move will give the Phillies 84 home games this season, and for a team that plays well at home, perhaps an unfair advantage over the Mets and others in the NL East.
“It’s ridiculous,” Francoeur said. Absolutely crazy.”
The Blue Jays will be the home team in the series, and the designated hitter will be used.
