Jeff Francis and his Stone of Shame

Baseball Prospectus released their latest Hit List and the Rockies check in at #24. Not surprising.

Anyway, in the short blurb that accompanies the ranking, Jay Jaffe writes that Jeff Francis' ERA is his Stone of Shame that he drags around. If you're a fan of The Simpsons you recognized that immediately. What kind of stones are the other guys in the organization dragging around and who will eventually take on the Stone of Triumph?

Stone of What-Might-Have-Been?
Stone of Mediocrity?
Stone of Regret?
Stone of Stupidity?

Feel free to make up your own categories.
