Jeff Francis

On the heels of last night's masterful 2-hitter against St. Louis, I'd be interested in hearing people's thoughts on Francis and how he's developing as a young pitcher.

He's come out guns-ablazin since the break, and his K rate's up too.  Perhaps he's starting to put it all together.  What do y'all think?  I'd be especially interested in hearing from any Rockies fans/people that saw Francis pitch last year--is he doing anything differrent, or is this just a case of a young guy starting to get more comfortable and settle in?

Other potential topics for discussion include Francis' home/road splits, the potential humidor effect, and this quote from LaRussa after last night's game, which is an absolute gem:

"He just worked us over," Cardinals manager Tony La Russa said. "He probably didn't even take a shower. I didn't see if he ever sweated. They probably could pitch him tomorrow. I hope he doesn't."
