08:20 AM ET 01.11 | According to a report, Bartolo Colon is being out-pitched by Raul Valdes during the round-robin semifinal in the Dominican Republic winter league. While Cuban born Valdes is doing very well, Colon has not had good outings so far. ... Colon failed to secure a win for the third straight game in the postseason, allowing four runs in five innings. The free-agent right-hander has an 0-2 record, with 4.86 ERA while allowing 27 hits in 16 2/3 innings as one of Escogido's late roster additions.

Nothing that a little cleansing couldn't cure.

Cain's going to be all over this topic. Nobody roughs up a colon like that sphincter stretcher.

I could definitely see Colon in Frisco. Can you imagine the walk up attendance when they find out that you can attend a Giant's game and see Buster catching Colon?

Wang to try and hurt Colon.

he gets roughed up in the majors, nobody cares.

the yankees should sign colon to a minor league deal, but just to keep him on the minors for the whole season, and maybe he could play one game on the majors before the season would be over!!

I have to admit, I agree Alarcon. Colon is no longer a ML pitcher. Why he is getting so much ink, I have no idea.

Because Colon jokesa are fun no matter what your age.
NY interested in Colon, see...

Great...why do I have the feeling the next story will involve him signing with the Indians?

That's easy. You have heard of the NFL's Rooney Rule I am sure. This is the the MLB's Paco Rule

I'm trying to enact the Piltdown rule to deny them Visas unless they want to mow my lawn or clean my toilets.

No biggie. He already has the no. 5 spot locked up in the Yankee rotation anyway
