Yeah, and it worked out great for Webb, right? 6 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 3 K, no decision. All things considered, a very mediocre performance. And this is a guy with a 3.06 GB/FB ratio we're talking about, a perfect pitcher for Coors.
My experience is that very few pitchers have dazzling performances at Coors, but plenty get shelled. There's a lot of risk and not much potential reward. I'd sit Clemens.
