contract year he managers 3.87 era/1.20 whip, get his money, eats too much, and gets to 5.01/1.37. He also managed to pitch twice as many innings in his contract year compared to the two seasons prior.

In fantasy football I have seen it extensively proven that the contract year incentive was bogus. Pretty sure its the same in baseball.

He's talking about last year. 2003 was Colon's contract year, and last year was the first year after. Aka...his 5.00 ERA year... 8-o
