Everyone sing!

I believe that Jeff is our future. Teach him him well and let him lead the way. Show him all the beauty he has in side!

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


um what? he plays for colorado.....

and i dont know, he's intriguing, but i think watch him like a hawk and pounce on the ww if he pitches 2 or 3 good games

hes not worth a spot now

This guy is the Neo of the Rockies, he has the type of lights out material that will overcome the thin air factor.

Check out the K/9, the opposing team can't jack it out of the yard if they can't hit the ball.

Well since the breaking stuff does not break in Denver, he better be throwing 98 with movement on the fastball to be lights out.

Seriosuly, Coors has turned decent pitchers into train wrecks (Hampton and others), stunted the development of other good pitchers (Kile) and ruined the career of many not so great pitchers.

Switch the numbers around and you have what he throws with his fastball. That being said he is a very talented young pitcher, but it is Coors after all.

he doesn't exist, just like Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.

Who is Jeff Francis? He is supposed to be Turkish. Some say his father was German. Nobody believed he was real. Nobody ever saw him or knew anybody that ever worked directly for him, but to hear Kobayashi tell it, anybody could have worked for Francis. You never knew. That was his power. The greatest trick Jeff Francis ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.

I could be wrong but I don't think Coors has even seen a Pitcher of Destiny like Francis....well, one that played for the Rockies, anyway ;-7 The sickest thing about him is that he's getting visibly better every year. At Colorado Springs last year he gave up 1.2 HR/9...assuming he adjusts enough to the majors to keep that number level, he is ownable (in NL only) based on his K/9 (32 K in 37 IP last year in the bigs). And I think he's earned that assumption. Come October, he'll have earned the ROY too.
