Jabba the Hutt vs. the Orioles

Recommended Posts

An unfortunate record was set last night.

Bartolo Colon became the first pitcher to beat one team as a member of seven different teams. That?s according to Elias, which could totally be making this up and no one would ever check.

Colon has now earned wins against the Orioles while pitching for the Indians, White Sox, Angels, Red Sox, Yankees, A?s, and Mets.

Colon improved to 13-8 vs. the Orioles. He first beat them in 1999 with 100 mph heat when Ripken was their face of the franchise -- Colon started off this game by striking out 22-year-old star Machado looking on three pitches, featuring fastballs that barely reach 90 mph.

"I was just a thrower back then. I threw gas," Colon said through a translator. "Now I'm old, and I'm a better pitcher."

Colon has defeated the O's while pitching for Cleveland, the White Sox, the Angels, Boston, the Yankees, Oakland and the Mets.

"Just what he's been doing forever," Orioles manager Buck Showalter said.

You know, as strict as this board is, it's ridiculous that such childish bs as calling a player Jabba the Hurt is allowed. That's really immature and it shouldnt be allowed. What did Bartolo ever do to deserve being b made fun of? Its like you are school bullies calling the fat kid names.

If you look it up, and I am not condoning the nickname, but the nickname is not something conceived in OH, there are other references on the internet calling him that,

Bartolo has always been very tough on the Orioles. Seems like the softer he throws, the more we struggle with him.

It's not just he's throwing softer but he has such movement on his pitches. Very similar to Jimenez in that regard, a lot of armside run on his FB.

Board Rule 27-B-2.2: All non-profane ridiculing of opposing pitchers who beat the Orioles is not only allowed, but encouraged.

Also:

Board Rule 36-C-1.4: Immature behavior by "adults" who post on this internet board is allowed in the Game Threads, when making fun of opposing pitchers, and when responding to humorless posters who deep down wish they were 1950's era elementary school teachers.

And the absolute pinpoint control. He seldom, if ever, throws a pitch anywhere in the middle of the plate. It is always at an awkward point for the hitter. His control now reminds me of Greg Maddux, Jamie Moyer. He didn't have that early in his career when he was a flamethrower.

I know, Bartolo probably has a "glandular problem".

Jabba the hut is pretty good, but I think that he looks a bit more like the Michelin Man.

Umm maybe because he is a known PED user?
