How many of you believe in Jeff Francis?

Will he have a good season? Is he worth picking up, and hoping he's a sleeper? Anyone?

I do not believe he's worth a roster spot this year. Until someone proves they can pitch successfully in CO, I'm not gonna believe it.

He could be worth a roster spot on the road. He is a great pitcher with great potential but the fact that he pitches in Coors drags his value down. Although when he is on the road he could be good.

AND he's from Canada ;-)

I like him a lot, but would not touch him in a mixed league. NL-only I'd consider him a worthwhile $5 or so gamble.

Why pick him up only to start him on the road? If I wanted a solid 80 innings (which he might not even deliver), I'd pick up a good middle reliever.

I'm in a very deep mixed league, 33 players and 14 teams, and I drafted him. Call me crazy, but I think with the talent he's got he can overcome the Coors factor and be a solid # 3 fantasy starter.

There has NEVER been a Rox SP worthy of an active roster spot in a 12 team mixed league that I am aware of. Maybe someone can find/recall one, but I can't think of one. Why would this guy be the exception?

Hey, there have barely been a few clsoers worthy of a roster spot let alone a SP that played for the Rox.
