In honor of Buddy the Elf (from the movie Elf) The new nickname for our possible platooning 3rd baseman, Juan Francisco should be "Buddy" Francisco. Buddy the elf was sooo in love with the name Francisco. Check it out. Youtube clip "Buddy goes to Dad's office." Buddy is sitting in Dad's office reading a book and talking about how much he loves the name Francisco. It goes well with "Georgie" Costanza. Buddy actually fits him very well.
