Royals outfielder Jeff Francoeur (in the bottom right corner of the pic above) has developed quite a relationship with the few A's fans who sit in right field at the Oakland Coliseum. Last season, Francoeur threw a baseball to the group: It was wrapped in a $100 a bill and had a note telling them to buy beer or bacon with the cash. During yesterday afternoon's game, Francoeur had 20 pizzas delivered to the section. (Thanks to Ruben Carlos Alonzo, of Springfield, Mo., for the link.)
