Honestly, Elvis is fast, but he is not a great bunter. Although, Julio Borbon is an exceptional bunter, if he gets more than one AB.

“While [Jeff Francoeur] hasn’t produced a wOBA north of .330 since 2007, he remains a threat against left-handed pitching. His .340 wOBA this year is about in line with his career mark. We can expect that he’ll enter the game should either Jeremy Affeldt or Javier Lopez be in the game, if for no other reason than goad Bruce Bochy into making a pitching change.”
I have to assume that the second sentence is talking about .340 wOBA against lefties, but the phrasing is pretty unclear.
Francoeur has done poorly against Giants pitching in 68 ABs. (Small sample size warning) He’s 0 for 5 against Affeldt and 1 for 1 against Lopez. He’s 8 for 62 against Giants righties and I would bet isn’t going to get into the games at AT&T all that much seeing as he’s a poor defensive replacement (-2.1 UZR over the last 3 years).
