Why does Colon suck now????

Postby Havok1517 » Sun Jul 04, 2004 2:13 am

This is a great pitcher with has electric stuff. Why can't he win with one of the best teams in baseball??? I have him in a keeper league and I'm very surprised by his suckiness (lol). Gave up 7ER in 4Ip tonight and has a season 6.57ERA. What is the deal??? This guy was awesome for the Indians and Expos, and pretty good for the White Sox. Can anybody explain, he having family problems or financial toubles wth the IRS??? Why Bartolo???

Bartolo Colon - S - ANA Buy Angels Tickets


Bartolo Colon gave up seven runs and three homers tonight in a second straight awful start against the Dodgers.
Colon's velocity is OK right now, but his fastball has no movement and he's not locating it well. Maybe the light will go on at some point, but these last two starts have been very discouraging. Bench him for next week's outing against the White Sox. Jul. 4 - 1:02 am et

its like he is saying here is my fastball, hit this.

Because he throws nothing but fastballs....

They should send him to the DL like LA did Nomo and give him some rehab starts and insert Ramon Ortiz until then.

Is it time to give up on this fat bum? I'm tired of his crap. I thought having Mussina, Colon, Oswalt, C. Zambrano, Santana, Sabathia would be great, but Colon is ruining every good start I have from my other pitchers.

They need to get this guy on a diet and exercise regiment. His problems may be in his head but getting into shape would be a step in the right direction. :-/

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

My keeper league rotation is as follows, Colon (quit being dumb), Carpenter, Oswalt, Burnett, and Pedro. I just wish Colon would stop burning me. GET IT TOGETHER!!!
