I'm REALLY glad I don't have him in any leagues. Samw with his twin Ponson. I could have traded him for Schmidt at the start of last year, which I thought would help my team, but I was greedy and asked for somebody else in the deal too. The guy didn't bite......... good thing I picked Clemens over Ponson as my final keeper this year :-° Damn thsoe fat bastards suck. Something to keep in mind for Sabathia I guess...........

Is that his perferred nickname? I'm guessing Angel fans and fantasy owners have much less kind nicknames.

Lardass Colon
Wasting 2% of Earth's landspace Colon
Meat Colon

The scary thing is I still think the guy will come around and still have him on my roster.

I drafted offense heavily and waited on pitching, and so my pitching staff ended up heavily laden with BOTH Fartolo and Ponson!! 8-o 8-o 8-o

My ERA and WHIP are big, fat disaster areas. My strikeout total is also a big, fat disaster area, but in a very small sort of way. :~( :-o :~(

So I kicked Ponson's lard butt to the curb. :-°
Then I traded excess hitting for that RJ Unit guy :-B ;-D
I'm hoping my pitching numbers can recover because I'm still in 2nd place despite the lead anchor thats been trying to pull me under.

What about Fartolo? He's locked in the basement (my bench) away from his supply of Twinkies, Burritos, Doritos, Chessie Poofs...... :-D

No, no he doesn't.

He was good when he could hit 98-100 on the gun. The guy doesn't even throw a breaking pitch. Now his fastball is in the low 90's and he's getting LIT UP for a reason. Seriously now, how hard is it to learn a curveball when you've been in the majors for that long? He was just a big guy who threw hard, now he's a bigger guy who throws average speed. Colon's career is over unless he seriously gets into shape and retools his game.
Help please:

Harden- 2.15 ERA, 7.61 K/9
Peavy - 2.89 ERA, 10.10 K/9

i have his next start being against the Rangers, the last game before Seattle.

Still might not be a bad start.
CBS Sportsline:

Colon is 2-0 with a 2.77 ERA in his last two starts. He'll face off against Texas next week. He is 2-0 with a 2.77 ERA against them this season, as well.
