Jeff Francis, I didn't know you had it in you
:Francis improved to 5-0 at Chase Field, and he has allowed only five earned runs in his last 33 1/3 innings here.
"I can't explain my success in this park," he said. "I think it's just a small sample size of me having a good run against one team."
If we enjoyed creating fake awards as much as Andrew Sullivan does, this might be the time to create a new Jeff Francis Award for players who seem to have some semblance of an understanding of how statistics work.
