  • The Battle of British Columbia

    Jeffrey William "Jeff" Francis (born January 8, 1981 in Vancouver, British Columbia)

    Justin Ernest George Morneau (born on May 15, 1981 in New Westminster, British Columbia)
    Jeff 1 Justin 0 so far in the game today.

    Guess they use to play together and Morneau use to catch Francis in summer league or something like that.

    Here it is

    DENVER -- Jeff Francis says he will have nothing new up his sleeve for former teammate Justin Morneau, whom he will face for the first time on Sunday.
    You see, not only were Francis and Morneau teammates 10 years ago on a summer league squad in British Columbia, but Morneau was Francis' catcher -- the one who saw Francis' stuff better than anybody else.

    "He was an outstanding catcher," Francis said. "But that was 10 years ago. Both of us are much different players now."

      Well Francis lost the battle but won the war with a 6-2 victory over the Twins for his first win of the season. Francis has pitched well enough to win in 3 other games with a little more run support though.

          Found this when I was looking up Jesse Crain to post his Colorado info. I think yakity George Frazier didn't mention it when they was giving the info about Francis and Morneau.
