Which one of these two young phenom pitchers would you rather take a chance on with a late round pick?

Kazmir, and it has nothing to do with me being a Rays fan, but everything to do with Francis pitching at Coors.

I think Francis has more talent, but Coors won't be kind.
So I like Kazmir better.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

In my league, where prospects tend to go for a premium, I'll pass on Kazmir, b/c he'll go higher then I want to select him. But i'm strongly considering Francis in the last round and starting him only away from Coors.

For this season I would go with Francis, especially if you can afford to bench him at home. Francis will definitely have a major league job in April. Kazmir may not and if he does he is not a MLB-ready as Francis and could get rocked.

In regards to drafting Colorado pictures, remember they play just as many away games as home games. And they play in a division with LA/SF/SD all pitchers parks. I'm would not pick Francis ahead of Kazmir, I would not pick Francis until my last pick, but if he is as good as everyone says he'll have some value as a spot starter that late in the draft.
