Julio Franco Era Over at Shea

New, comments

According to Newsday the Mets are expected to sent Julio Franco down to Triple-A to make room for Lastings Milledge's return tonight. Franco could ask for his release, accept the demotion, or just flat-out retire. It's a long overdue move from the Mets standpoint, and opens the door for the youngsters to get some more playing time.
