Hey, a familiar face in a different uniform: Pedro Astacio!
With Francis on the mound there is a good chance of the Rockies sweeping the Nats. But even if the Rockies complete the sweep, how many will notice? With the Broncos playing in St. Louis, a sweep won't be highly publicized.
And maybe it shouldn't. It's a sweep of the Nats. Of course, sweep the Yankees next season maybe it's a big story since it'll be in June. But don't hold your breath for that.
