Relief pitcher Frank Francisco said it was strange when the Toronto Blue Jays got into Arlington on Sunday night. "Last night when I was driving from the airport to here, I felt a little weird," he said. "I slapped myself. Was I going to cry? I loved it here. I had good times. I grew up here." Francisco made his first visit to The Ballpark in Arlington on Monday since the Rangers traded him to Toronto in January for Mike Napoli. Francisco said he had no hard feelings and was looking forward to the trip. He was also looking forward to getting his American League championship ring, which he received before the game. Francisco said he plans to wear the ring and hopes to add another ring to his jewelry collection with the Blue Jays.
