Jeff Francis(I'm serious) - Merged

Postby just a bit outside » Thu May 24, 2007 5:00 pm

After his terrible start, Francis has turned things around. In his last 4 outings he is 2-0 and owns a 1.53 ERA. :-° He has not gotten a lot of run support which is why he is only 3-4 on the season. I'm not saying he is the next big thing, but I believe he can develop into the Rockies' ace(not a hard task) in the future. What are some thoughts on this lefty?

1) CO Rockies pitcher
2) His name is Francis


Actually he could be useful, especially in daily leagues where you could bench at home, start on the road. He's someone I'm watching.

He was good at times last year too. He just doesn't K enough people and walks a few too many to thrive in that park as a non groundball pitcher.

Um he already is and has been the rox's ace for a few years.

But yea he's a good pitcher who gets 0 run support. He was minor league player of the year a few years back I believe.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I own him in 1 league and he makes a decent spot starter on away games. I use him some and am pretty happy so far

Pretty weak hitting teams in his last 4 starts.

I wouldn't put to much stock into him.

Worthy as a spot-starter on the road against the weaker teams. (I spot started him yesterday against the DBs and was nicely rewarded.) But starting him in Coors against a strong lineup is Russian Roulette with a two-barrel bazooka. :-o

Is that worse than normal Russian Roulette? I mostly stick to team sports. Mostly.

"Is that worse than normal Russian Roulette?"

Yes, much worse! You have a 1-in-2 chance of getting the death chamber (as opposed to 1-in-6 with normal roulette) and the bazooka blast is more comparable to the potential damage in Coors against a hot-hitting team. :-b

Francis has been outstanding in his past four starts. Hopefully he's starting to live up to the hype he received.
