LMOA...... it's so true. He gets millions to pitch! Millions! It doesn't take a finess guru to pitch effectively either, look at David Wells. In Bartolo's case though, I think it may be a factor. I haven't even seen him pitch this year, but i've seen pictures of him, and his weight definitely can't helping his pitching!
