WANDER FRANCO

Wander Franco is a twenty-year-old.

I have suits older than that.

Shoes too.

Good ones — in each case.

High quality.

Well-made.

Expensive.

Wander Franco is better than all that, at what he does.

Way better.

Franco is a switch-hitting rookie shortstop for the AL East-leading Tampa Bay Rays (86–51), who flashes leather in the field and has reached base in 33 consecutive games at this writing.
