Colon expects short stint on DL

Bartolo ColonThe Yankees have placed Bartolo Colon on the 15-day disabled list, but the veteran right-hander doesn't expect to miss any more than 15 days.

"I feel good -- I just have a little bit of pain," Colon told reporters, including Pete Caldera of the Bergen Record. "After 15 days, I'll be back."

If Colon is correct, he'll miss just two starts with his left hamstring injuries. He would be eligible to start against June 28 against Milwaukee.

Colon left Saturday's game in the seventh inning after feeling "a tug" in the hamstring while covering first base.

The team also placed right-hander Amauri Sanit on the disabled list with an elbow injury and called up right-hander Hector Noesi and outfielder Chris Dickerson.

Baseball players are wusses

Suck it up Colon. It's just a hamstring. Do you really need it to pitch? It's not like you have to bat and run the bases.

Who could have ever thought that this would be the best news we could be getting?!  Maybe he will take off a couple of pounds in the DL stint to take a lil load off the legs!

Man, where would the yanks be without this guy.  He comes out of nowhere and has done a bang up job to date, hopefully its just a small strain, we will need him.  The funny thing going into this year was the pitching concern, knowing full well that the yanks were gonna hit up and down the lineup.  But up until now (and I stress its only June, BUT) the Yanks are 4th in the AL with a 3.67 ERA, 6th in opponents batting average and 2nd in runs allowed.  Pretty solid numbers up until this point.  It should also be noted that the bullpen ERA is the lowest as well.  It finally looks like the bats are coming alive.  I know getting smacked around by Boston has not helped but they are hot right now and sometimes you just get boat raced when you don't want to.  I belive we will have a little something for Boston down the line.

My major concern for this team is all the Home Runs.  Yeah, they're pretty and we all know "Chicks dig the long ball", but we need to manufacture more runs from moving base runners along and taking singles and doubles when they present themselves.  In the playoffs pitching is KING (member Cliff Lee and the Rangers) and you have to be able to scrape across runs with a walk, stolen base and a single or sac fly.  If they cannot improve on that then they will make the playoffs but be in trouble against better pitching.  Its getting close to the All star break and hopefully the good pitching will continue.....GO YANKS.

This is as as good of news as could we could have hoped for.  With the way things have gone for the Yanks as of late, this almost feels as good as a win.

He's done more in major league baseball that you
So? I am sure you have done more then all the athletes you have criticsized in your life.

I would expect a comment like that from a Squealers fan. 

I forgot West Virginians have a soft spot for fat imbreds.

Colon is a fat mess. He is still a great pitcher but there is no way his body will hold up this season. His legs have been carrying this load for his whole life and they are going to fail, especially when it gets hot this summer. He's not a spring chicken anymore. If he was, he'd eat his own legs. I hear when the Yankees go on the road, Colon is transported on a cargo plane. He looks like an overweight zebra when he puts on the pin stripes. His MRI was done at KFC.
