Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"In this game you worry about what you can't control. When the day comes and my career is over, I'm probably not going to have any control over that. If I step on the field every time and I'm prepared and I worked hard in the winter, I'm never going to have any regrets. That's the way I took it." - Jeff Francis on MLB.com (Thomas Harding, 03/20/2013, Francis poised to open eyes with guile , Source )

Did you know that when Jeff Francis was named the 2004 Baseball America Minor League Player of the Year and the 2004 USA Today Minor League Player of the Year , he became the first Colorado Rockies player to win either of those prestigious awards? In addition, Boomer became only the fourth different player to be honored by both publications in the same season, joining Andruw Jones (1995 & 1996), Rick Ankiel (1999), and Josh Beckett (2001).

In 2007 , Jeff Francis won seventeen games for the Colorado Rockies , setting a new still-standing franchise record for wins in a season by a left-handed pitcher, held previously by Shawn Estes , who had fifteen wins with the 2004 Colorado Rockies .
