Colon does it again

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Apr 27, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post


Bartolo Colon continues to exceed all expectations, and tonight he pitched well enough to make up for a lineup that continues to struggle. An early three-run lead was enough as Colon pitched eight scoreless innings and carried the Yankees to a 3-1 win against the White Sox. Robinson Cano’s first-inning home run drove in all three Yankees runs. They had only three hits after the first, but it didn’t matter because Colon gave the Yankees another masterful start, serving as his own bridge to closer Mariano Rivera, who pitched a scoreless ninth to end his own streak of back-to-back blown saves.

    Cy Colon…

    Colonized. Now we will exploit them for their natural resources.

    Now we will exploit them for their natural resources.

    Pitchers I hope.

  4. Laura - I Bleed Blue April 27th, 2011 at 9:24 pm

    I just hope Colon can keep this going.

  5. blake April 27th, 2011 at 9:24 pm

    Order has been restored. Great job by Colon….fantastic.

  6. Bo knows April 27th, 2011 at 9:25 pm

    That was as bad a three game set of hitting as I’ve ever seen. Totally putrid.

    They’re lucky they’re playing a struggling team who aren’t hitting right now.

    NICE!

    8 scoreless innings?

  9. UnKnown April 27th, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    Get the translator ready for Big Bart. Awesome job. Split tomorrow with the other hefty guy from the other side slinging it.

    Hope Tex is fine.

  10. BoJo April 27th, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    The guy is a former All Star, Cy Young, and ace…who is a smart pitcher and healthy once again. I wanted him in starting rotation with Garcia from early on…he is not exceeding my expectations…he is meeting them.

  11. trisha - true pinstriped blue April 27th, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    A few of us got tired of C*9s psycho BS and the crap he was posting and so we decided to take it elsewhere, at least for a while.

    Miss you guys too.

    :)

  12. Jerkface April 27th, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    Orioles have orioles’d away their lead

  13. BoJo April 27th, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    Painful–Youk just hit one out…still has to show me he can do that more often.

  14. Jerkface April 27th, 2011 at 9:30 pm

    BoJo he is on pace for 40.

  15. BoJo April 27th, 2011 at 9:30 pm

    Haven’t seen that psycho in a while….good to have a back up site if ever needed.

  16. ac1 April 27th, 2011 at 9:30 pm

    wow the sox got that back in a hurry

    And they have a 4th game tomorrow.

  19. BoJo April 27th, 2011 at 9:31 pm

    He’s still hitting like 210, right?

  20. ac1 April 27th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    some needs to tell Jed Lowrie that beard doesnt make him look older than 13.

  21. Jerkface April 27th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    Before that HR Youk was hitting: .212 .384 .470 .853

    The low average is nice but he is walking and hitting for power.

  22. BoJo April 27th, 2011 at 9:32 pm

    I thought he was ugly with that beard, buit wow–maybe he should just wear a goalie mask.

  23. BoJo April 27th, 2011 at 9:34 pm

    Thanks for correcting me JF…I was expecting him to struggle coming off hand injury.

  24. pat April 27th, 2011 at 9:35 pm

    Ledger_Yankees Girardi still has yet to arrive for his postgame. Strange.

  25. BoJo April 27th, 2011 at 9:35 pm

    Girardi probably talking to trainers about Tex.

  26. Bo knows April 27th, 2011 at 9:36 pm

    Surely they won’t continue this wild swinging again. I think I’ll take a break tomorrow, watching this is painful.

  27. BoJo April 27th, 2011 at 9:37 pm

    Crawford hitting 156…does anyone htink his collar is a little tight?

  28. BoJo April 27th, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    I’m out…Good night night people.

  29. West Coast Yankee Fan April 27th, 2011 at 9:39 pm

    Hughes – Low level risk of (sp) Thorasic Outlet Syndrome – a circulatory issue. Sending him to a Dr. Thompson in St. Louis to find out for sure.

  30. LGY April 27th, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    Dwayne Wade with some major douchebaggery to end the game.

    Rooting for the Celtics next round.

  31. GreenBeret7 April 27th, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    U of St. Louis and Barnes Jewish Hospital have the best chest crackers in the country.

  32. DocTodd April 27th, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    LGY….sorry, but I can’t cheer for ANY Boston team….

    Thoracic outlet syndrome is a rare condition that involves pain in the neck and shoulder, numbness and tingling of the fingers, and a weak grip. The thoracic outlet is the area between the rib cage and collar bone.

    Blood vessels and nerves coming from the spine or major blood vessels of the body pass through a narrow space near the shoulder and collarbone on their way to the arms. As they pass by or through the collarbone (clavicle) and upper ribs, they may not have enough space.

    Pressure (compression) on these blood vessels or nerves can cause symptoms in the arms or hands. Problems with the nerves cause almost all cases of thoracic outlet syndrome.

    Compression can be caused by an extra cervical rib (above the first rib) or an abnormal tight band connecting the spinal vertebra to the rib. Patients often have injured the area in the past or overused the shoulder.

  34. West Coast Yankee Fan April 27th, 2011 at 9:42 pm

    Symptoms of thoracic outlet syndrome may include:

    - Pain, numbness, and tingling in the pinky and ring fingers, and the inner forearm

    - Pain and tingling in the neck and shoulders (carrying something heavy may make the pain worse)

    - Signs of poor circulation in the hand or forearm (a bluish color, cold hands, or a swollen arm)

    - Weakness of the muscles in the hand

    What did Wade do?

    What did he do?

  37. DocTodd April 27th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    O’s back on top 5-4

  38. LGY April 27th, 2011 at 9:44 pm

    “What did Wade do?”

    ————-

    There was like 7 seconds left in the game and the 76ers had given up just waiting for the clock to run out and walk off the floor.

    Wade decides to run down the court and dunk it leaving 0.05 on the clock so the 76ers have to walk back and inbound it.

  39. Rich in NJ April 27th, 2011 at 9:47 pm

    Wade is like Emmitt Smith was. He talks a good game, but it’s all bs.

  40. ac1 April 27th, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    lebron is wearing off on d-wade.

    Wow, what a di*k move by Wade! Sounds like Lebron is rubbing off on him.

    Didn’t he have a rib injury in 08?

    Sox lose

  44. Bx is Burning April 27th, 2011 at 10:14 pm

    That Miami crowd was DEAD. Hardly deserved to enjoy a series closeout.
    Cs/Heat series = worst of both worlds.

  45. Dill Pickler April 27th, 2011 at 10:20 pm

    lineup that continues to struggle is an understatement. 5 runs in 3 games. 13 hits in 3 games. The Dead Bat Society lives! unfortunately…

    Stuart Weitzman ribbons pump motor can get slightly lacy in addition to racy using a up-to-date nylon uppers top which will show a few pores and skin. Permit the ribbons fine detail master a person with your stunning sends..

    Really should be truth, there are abounding affidavit to the acceptance of cast name bags, the basal one getting their own acceptable quality. But afar from that, their own actuality provides a agency for individuals to authenticate their identity.
