Gameday Thread: Rockies at O's, rubber match

     Jeff Francis, LH                Hayden Penn, RH
     (5-4, 5.69)                     (1-0, 4.71)

Game time is 1:35 on WJZ and if you're out in the Colorado area, you can catch it on KTVD.

So Matos is back and Newhan is in Ottawa. It was the right call in my book.

Anyway, today's game should be an interesting one, a matchup of two young pitchers. We know Penn's story. Francis is 24, which seems ancient compared to Penn, and has been Cabrera-esque with bad control this year, throwing gems one start and getting hammered the next. Rockies fans seem to like him, and I've never seen him so I can't judge.
