Found August 24, 2012 on The Victory Formation:
For those of you familiar with Paul Lukas and his Uni Watch blog, you know how passionate he is about all things jersey related. Earlier today he ranked all of MLB’s uniforms from 1 to 30. Uniform arguments are always kind of fun. It’s also great for reminiscing about your childhood and the fond memories [...]

A's Colon suspended 50 games

Oakland Athletics' right-handed pitcher Bartolo Colon has been suspended 50 games for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. Major League Baseball announced the suspension Wednesday for the 39-year-old Colon, who was in the midst of a rebound season with a 10-9 record and 3.43 ERA for the wild-card contender. "I apologize to the fans, to my teammates and to...

Can the Athletics Make the Playoffs Without Bartolo Colon?

One of the unfortunate subplots of this year's two big player suspensions is that both players were contributing members for teams in the middle of a tight playoff race. Melky Cabrera and the Giants are locked up with the Dodgers for the NL West crown while Bartolo Colon and the A's are fighting tooth and nail for a wild card spot in the American League. After losing one...

Athletics Pitcher Bartolo Colon Suspension

Major League Baseball has suspended Oakland Athletics pitcher Bartolo Colon for 50 games today after testing positive for testosterone. This suspension will be for the last 40 games of the regular season and 10 games in the postseason if the A’s make it that far. If they A’s don’t make it far then, Colon’s final 10 games of his suspension will count towards the team he signs...

Oakland A’s pitcher Bartolo Colon fails drug test, hit with 50-game suspension

Apparently Major League Baseball players aren’t getting the message or simply just don’t care. The league was embarrassed for the second time in a week on Aug. 22 when Bartolo Colon, a pitcher for the AL’s Oakland Athletics, was suspended for 50 games for failing a drug test. Just a few days earlier, San Francisco Giants’ outfielder Melky Cabrera was hit with the same punishment...

Point and Grunt Baseball: Bartolo Colon

Colon isn’t fat; he’s just fluffy. Bartolo Colon tested positive for synthetic testosterone and received a 50-game suspension for his troubles.  Does this make him the dumbest cheater ever, or was he simply guilty of consuming one Melky Cabrera?  The two questions are not necessarily mutually exclusive, so the possibility remains that the dumbest cheater ever ate a Cabrera...

Ross' one-day stint with A's ends with a loss

Tyson Ross' assignment on Thursday wasn't all that easy: Join the A's at the last second to fill in for a veteran starter who'd been suspended for violating baseball's drug policy, and pitch against the Tampa Bay Rays, the team above Oakland in the wild-card hunt. Ross was probably the fourth option for Oakland on Thursday, but none of the others were available...

If it looks like a duck, and it quacks like a duck, sometimes it means Bartolo Colon used steroids.

Something fishy about the success of a chubby thirty-nine year old Bartolo Colon? A week ago I wrote a post suggesting that we probably should have seen Melky Cabrera’s steroid suspension coming.  There was a clear spike in his numbers at the beginning of last season.  Yesterday Bartolo Colon received the same 50 game suspension from MLB for illegal testosterone use.  But...

A's look to regroup quickly from Colon suspension

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Athletics starting pitcher Bartolo Colon, the former Cy Young award winner and two-time All-Star, won't be around for Oakland's surprising pennant push and news of his 50-game suspension stunned teammates who had come to rely on the popular and dependable veteran. A week to the day after San Francisco Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera was hit with a 50...

Bartolo Colon – Fat, Gross, Unathletic, Suspended, PED Abuser…And Gay?

Gross. This video makes me physically ill, but I still can’t turn away from this quivering blob of lard trying – and failing – to shag fly balls in the outfield before an A’s game just prior to being suspended 50 games for jamming syringes into his undoubtedly rash-covered backside. And why is he wearing a hoodie before a day game in Oakland? His teammates are all wearing...

Rays try to take series from Oakland

Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon has plenty of respect for Jonny Gomes. He just would like him to stop haunting his former team. Gomes and the Oakland Athletics try to wrap up this three-game series between AL wild-card frontrunners Saturday with back-to-back wins ahead of a rare Sunday off in the thick of the pennant race. Gomes broke into the majors with the Rays, whom he played...

Fantasy Baseball – Ask Nash: Should I pick up Stephen Drew?

I have gotten a few questions about Stephen Drew, but it is a case-by-case basis with him. I figured I’d write a post giving thumbs up or thumbs down on Drew based on situation. Dear Nash, Should I pick up Stephen Drew? Pretty much everyone with a struggling SS this week. Lets just start off with the obvious thumbs down.  Here are the top 20 short stops as ranked for a standard...

Complete list of violations of MLB’s joint drug prevention and treatment program since 2005

    Earlier this week Oakland A’s pitcher Bartolo Colon became the second big league player in a matter of days, joining Melky Cabrera of the San Francisco Giants, to violate MLB’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. Both tested positive for testosterone and each received a 50-game suspension. Since 2005 there have been 599 [...]

A's 5, Twins 1

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Rookie Tommy Milone pitched eight innings, allowed two hits and a run, struck out five and walked only one batter as the Oakland Athletics beat the Minnesota Twins, 5-1, on Wednesday afternoon. Milone (10-9) became the second pitcher on the staff to notch double-digit victories (Bartolo Colon, 10), and the win ended a personal three game losing streak. Coco...

Could Colon and Cabrera Change a Culture?

Bartolo Colon’s major league career was on a roll. From 1998 through 2005 he won 135 games, leading the league in 2005 with a 21-8 record and 3.49ERA. Then it all came to a crashing halt. The man who averaged 17 wins per season for eight years managed a total of 17 wins over the next few seasons, including an erratic stint with the Red Sox in 2008.  He disappeared from the MLB...
