Aug 3, 2013; St. Petersburg, FL, USA; San Francisco Giants left fielder Jeff Francoeur (23) hits a single during the third inning against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. Mandatory Credit: Kim Klement-USA TODAY SportsJeff Francoeur has never been known as a genius. But his minor league teammates with the Padres' AAA affiliate, the El Paso Chihuahua, have taken it to a new level.

The Chihuahuas managed to convince Francoeur that Jorge Reyes, one of the pitchers on the team, is deaf.

They did a pretty good job, from what it sounds like, but there were still a few times when Francoeur should have figured it out, like when a catcher talked to Reyes with his hand over his mouth.

But hey... as many of Francoeur's teammates said... he's an idiot.
