What Does Julio Franco Have

that Rickey Henderson doesn't?

Franco is 47 and still in the major leagues; Henderson is 46 and still looking for one more shot.

Henderson is a future Hall of Famer; Franco has had a nice career.

Franco is on one of the best franchises in contemporary times.

Henderson just signed with his second independent league team in as many years.

Odd that more Major League personnel are Francophiles than they are enamored of Rickey's numbers.

Or is it?

I personally am looking forward to the day when some team in the Majors announces a lineup that includes a 46 year-old leadoff hitter.
