Mr. Colon, what has happend to you?

Postby Baseballer02 » Sun Jun 06, 2004 5:52 pm

What do folks plan on doing with the natural disaster that is Bartolo Colon? He's usually been one of my fav. pitchers, but this year he has just been horrendous. Is everyone planning on dropping him after 7 ER against Cleveland today, or is he still to good to drop?

Too good to drop... but his value has to be real low, so trading him will be tough. There's no way you'd get anything close to his value (presuming he rights the ship).

Glad I packaged him with Valvarde two weeks ago for Mussina and Kolb (I also had to throw in Derek Lee, but I got Delgado).

I think he meant he already had Delgado, so he traded Colon, Valverde, Lee, for Mussina and Kolb.

No, Baseballer02 got it right.

I got Mussina, Kolb and Delgado and sent over Colon, Lee and Valverde.

At the time, Mussina was struggling and Colon was doing OK. Valverde seemed secure as the closer in AZ and Delgado was struggling mightily (well, he's still struggling).

I don't usually get this lucky. And the owner who made the deal with me is in first place. He's usually much more savy.

Strange, but I'll take it.

I just traded Colon and Lowell for Bonds.

Lowell will drop off soon (as he does every year) and Colon has destroyed my ERA & WHIP.

Safe to say he's THE biggest bust of this past off-seasons FAs.

That big fat contract bought Bartolo lots and lots of whoppers and cheesie poofs, and lots and lots of heartburn for me.... :~( :~( :~(
