Today the Rockies will welcome back 2009 All-Star Jason Marquis to Coors Field. He's pitching for a team that, believe it or not, has a worse record than the Rockies. In 26.1 innings with the Padres, Marquis has been pretty good, putting up a sterling 2.05 ERA. In the last 30 days, Colorado's starters have a 8.12 ERA.

The Rockies will counter with a pitcher who sat out 2009 with an arm injury in Jeff Francis. Francis is coming off a good outing last time, getting a no decision against Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals.
This series *knock on wood* actually looks winnable, which would be the first series victory since the beginning of the month.
An overflow thread is scheduled for 7:45 MDT.
