    In Response to Re: Needle marked Colon? : This is not true in my case, not that I really care at this point what you think. Did you know you were wrong when you claimed I had aliases? Maybe not, but what if it's actually not true? Kind of puts a few holes in your statement. Specifically, this issue was an aside, and is largely superfluous to this thread.  Hanging your hat on this doesn't amount to much regarding Colon. And speaking of spin ....

    Thats the problem with you and harness, you are both in denial and neither of you really care about anyone who disagrees with you.  So you beat your personal beliefs into fans over and over and over until they get upset.

    Then say you were provoked, get real.  I started this post as a joke because thats what it is and has never happened in all my years of watching the game.  Its a legitamate concern that should be looked into and addressed with everyone if legit.

    Yes, it is. But what about my response to your previous comment? You claimed I was in denial, when I said "Was HGH involved? Perhaps.", and similar statements. How, exactly, is that denial?

    That one I missed nhsteven, at least you can entertain the fact so I apologize for that.  All I would like to see come out of this is a reasonable explanation that can be verified by experts in the medical profession. 

    I'm sure they also find this quite amusing after years of trying to research this themselves..

    Apology accepted, and agreed. Finally, we're on the same page. And FTR, (although I'm repeating myself) I'm suspicious too. However, if it's legit, this could become as popular (or even moreso) as TJ.

    It will certainly be interesting to watch unfold and what after affects Colon may have as a result.

    yes, great comparison.  he is playing like Clemens and bonds and mcguire and giambi and pettitte and sosa and gradyson and teixiera and canseco and all the other juicers.  the evidence is overwelming.  WHY WON'T THEY SUSPEND HIM?  I DON'T GET IT.

    What I don't understand is why won't BigPapi share his PED's with Lackey?  Clearly Lackey is on of the few Sox players that is clean he needs a boost from Papi.

    Just imagine Lackeys arm was even better than Colons before the "Well you know"

    Good comeback?  I thought so

    As of yet Colon hasn't had any press conferences that Papi has had to hold...we'll see.

    I think it's time to take a hard look at Freddie Garcia. He's got seven wins and a 3.13 ERA. He's taking something that is making him throw slower than last year. I mean c'mon--a Yankee, seven wins, 3.13, had unreported root canal work, has a Latin American family? I'm not buying it.

    Garcia's WHIP is career average, as will his ERA be by the end of the season.

    Colon's is the best of his career.  By quite a bit.  At age 38.  Thanks for playing.

    Not sure why the boy wonder didn't sign him if this is an average year for Freddie. Try less whining, fewer excuses, more baseball. Thanks for having me.

    The MLB will investigate if your erections and performance are legitimate or not.

    Don't you check these things before you post? Keep in mind the ERA+ is even better, 'cause 2002 had more hitting than now. And FWIW I'd rather have the Cy Young Colon (yet another season) than this yr's model, illegitimacy notwithstanding. '98-'00 were nice seasons also, given the preponderance of offense at the time, finishing 10th, 7th and 5th in the AL in ERA, respectively. To contrast, if he had enough innings to qualify this yr, he would be 12th.

    Also, waiting for Garcia to implode could be a fruitless wait. He has evolved into a supreme finesse pitcher. Right now his ERA is 4.36 runs better than Lackey. In fact Nova's MLB ERA is 4.12, and he was just sent to the minors; the Yankees actually have a logjam right now in the SP department.

    Sometimes you don't need proof, you just know.....Sorry Yankee fans, hes on something not yet detectable.  As far as Manny goes, yeah he was on Roids and so was half your team in 2004 and half of baseball so dont take it personal.  What im saying is- Your boy is on Roids, it doesnt add up.  They must have done some mutant Stem cell surgery on him thats for sure.

    Not sure whats upwith Colon, but whatever they did to him its working..Hes always been a pretty solid pitcher, but to be dominating at 38 is either pretty impressive or pretty sketchy..

    "Also, waiting for Garcia to implode could be a fruitless wait. He has evolved into a supreme finesse pitcher. Right now his ERA is 4.36 runs better than Lackey.

    It appears that he has turned himself into more of a finesse pitcher Steve. Which could add a few more years to his career. Im not holding my breath for him to fall off a cliff..although one can hopeSealed

    Yes, I followed your link and saw that Colon's WHIP is currently 1.055.  The best of his career was his cy young season when he posted a 1.159.  

    I think we can all agree that WHIP is a better measure of a pitcher's performance than ERA.  Finesse or not, Garcia's WHIP of 1.272 is too high to be commensurate with a 3.15 ERA.  In fact, it's the highest WHIP of any pitcher with an ERA under 3.28.  Burnett's WHIP is lower than Garcia's.  It's not a bad WHIP - just more in line with his career stats.  That's not an implosion, but you are not likely to see the results you saw in the first half.

    As for Nova, If you're expecting better results from Hughes, I'm not sure what that's based on.

    If Hughes doesn't perform he can be sent back to the bullpen and Nova recalled from Scranton.  Its nice to have options, hows Lackey and Bucholz?

    Garcia is basically the same guy we have seen for years.  If he gets his breaking ball over the plate he can be effective.  No surprises, Colon is a completely different story.
