We've been down this road, thinking a guy would flourish at Coors:
Nied cause he was so talented
Swift because he throws ground balls
Kile and Hampton because the were so good and savvy
Neagle because he was so crafty
Logic was that even if their Coors numbers were bad, their road games would be worth it. Didn't matter - the Coors effect trailed like a fart down the hallway.
Someday someone in Coors will do it. Until then, I'll take the Cappellans, Blantons, Lowrys, etc.
Note that Francis does not throw particulalry hard (91 tops, I've heard). That's another thing that makes me skeptical about his long-term value in Coors.
