Francoeur sees the lite

Former Met Jeff Francoeur has joined the band of major leaguers who have lost weight over the winter. 

Francoeur, now with Kansas City, is at 207 pounds, down from about 225 with the Mets.

``My best year was 2007 when I hit .293 with 19 home runs and drove in 105 runs,”  he was quoted. ``“But my home runs dropped from 29 to 19, and everybody kept asking me why they dropped. I had been playing around 215, but I bulked up to 242 going into (the next) spring. It just never was the same.”
