Box Score Bytes - Game 58

- Welcome back Jeff Francis, guess what...Coors Field hasn't changed!  Francis went 55-50 with a 4.77 ERA in 150 career starts with the Rockies from 2004-10. He was tagged for eight runs and 10 hits in 3 1/3 innings in his return.

- With the arrival of Jeff Francis, Rox say goodbye to Esmil Rogers.  Rogers who has been intriguing especially for his high velocity never found his role in Colorado.  Pitched here since 2009, he started 22 games and had an overall record of 8-11 with 184.2 innings pitched in a Rox uniform. Owning a career bWAR of -3.8, he probably didn't deserve a spot even in baseball's worse pitching staff.  He will most likely be claimed and thus not be a Rox.

- How crazy must it be being a hitter for the Rox?  Second game this year where the team homered five times and loss...just goes to show what kind of year it has been...
