Is this guy going and staying into the crapper? I traded him for recently, and it seems like I made a horrid mistake.

What's wrong with him?

I don't get it too...

I am watching him pitch now, and it has been rough. Apparently his ankle is still bothering him, forcing him to alter his delivery slightly, as he can't stretch his delivery leg too far.

Not the biggest fan of him now... Still packing the girth...

Most here think he'll turn it around. Don't listen to them, he's garbage. Who'd you trade to get him?

Maddux.

Probably should've kept Maddux at this rate..

My whole pitching staff sucks today. Go figure.

Actually, the trade hasn't gone through yet. I'm actually hoping it gets vetoed for my sake.

He was showing signs of decline last year. The guy has thrown a lot of IP for several years and considering that he's not exactly a physical specimen, I suspect his best days are behind him. No, I didn't think he'd totally collapse as he has, but thought he was overvalued prior to the season.

The ironic thing about this....Maddux got beat by the Halos last night...and Colon looks to take the loss tonight....(if the Cubbies can hold on...)

Baseball Tonight is saying thay he's pressing too much..

Oh yeah, Angels are actually trying to win this game for Colon. Hopefully it'll give him some kind of confidence..

Pressing? If he was pressing, wouldn't he have done that at the beginning of the year, when he was brand new to his new team? He was good at the beginning of the season, so I am inclined to believe the guy is hurt....

When's his delivery date?

Maybe once he has that kid he'll start pitching better.
