Without hesitation, Francona brought up a memory from 1990 when he played for the Milwaukee Brewers. Francona was intentionally walked in the game, which shouldn't carry any controversy.

How does this happen? What hilarious remark did Francona have for Kaiser? Watch our full interview in the player above.
