Back in High School I was somewhat of a stud. I’d go to the batting cages every single day until the blisters on my hands would begin to bleed, and then I’d stay for another hour. Unfortunately, baseball is not what I do for a living.
I work in the Advertising Industry. The once washboard abs have been replaced by a hairy stomach and the power bars and visits to the gym by Taco Bell and weekend marathons of Grand Theft Auto on the Xbox360. I only wish I could have the career of someone like Bartolo Colon, who has twice won 20+ games and even a Cy Young Award.
What is hard to fathom is that the once very reliable Colon, who won 14 or more games in 8 straight seasons is just 11-15 in the past three years. It’s been analyzed and now over-analyzed but could it possibly have anything to do with the, oh I don’t know, extra 25+ lbs. he is carrying? Maybe?
Well, Colon put himself on the Disabled List earlier in the week after swinging a baseball bat. Talk amongst yourselves on that one.
Where have you gone, Rickey Henderson?
