Yes, it's less than a week, but I already have a guest writer. This comes from commenter "grandcosmo"
Just to put Julio Franco's age into perspective:
Over 25 years ago Bill Gullickson struck out 18 Cubs one day
in Montreal. Franco is almost a year older than Gullickson.
25 years ago Britt Burns and Richard Dotson led the Chicago
White Sox in victories with 15 and 12. Franco is older than
both of them.
20 years ago, Don Mattingly and Willie McGee won the MVP
awards and Bret Saberhagen and Dwight Gooden won the Cy
Young Awards. Franco is older than all four of them.
Brian Harper's first at-bat came while pinch hitting for
Willie Davis in 1979. Franco is a year and a half older than
Tim Conroy started a game for the Oakland A's in 1978.
Franco is almost 2 years older than Conroy.
Franco is the same age as Charles White who won the Heisman
Trophy in 1979.
He's the same age as Mike Scioscia, Dave Righetti and Bruce
Hurst. He's 3 years older than Kirby Puckett and 5 years
older than Ozzie Guillen.
Looking at other sports, he's older than Mike Singletary,
Lawrence Taylor, and Magic Johnson. He's three years older
than Isiah Thomas, Dan Marino and Boomer Esiason. He's five
years older than Charles Barkley.
He's the same age as Andy Gibb, who's been dead for 17 years
and, to paraphrase Bill James, you can't get any older
