He was still pitching for the Rockies. The Coors effect extends beyond simply the park factor. It affects a pitcher's confidence and his ability to pitch effectively. Good Lord. I'm starting to sound like one of those rabid Jeter fans.
In all seriousness, though, I don't think it's quite so simple as extracting a pitcher's away stats from his overall numbers when his home park is Coors. The place ruins pitchers, period. Pitchers are not the same pitching for the Rockies.
