Francis has got it backwards

Somebody better let Rockies' pitcher Jeff Francis into the secret that pitchers should be horrible at Coors and pitch better in the thin air below the mile high city. Obviously no one has told him yet because he has got the situation backwards. In his four starts at Coors Field, he is is 3-0 with a 2.92 ERA, with opponents hitting .247. 5280 feet below that, he's 1-1 with a 5.82 ERA and a .298 average against. Francis has the potential to be a fantasy stud in keeper leagues - though only after he decides to leave Coors and the hapless Rockies. In the meantime, keep Francis in your lineup when he has two starts in a week at home but out when he makes two starts on the road. If he's got a game home and away in a week, roll the dice if you don't have better options.
