He picked the right side of that rivalry...
Big, fat Bartolo Colon has never felt better about his decision to sign with Red Sox nation in 2008; Yanks manager Joe Girardi has banned sweets from the Yankees clubhouse! Girardi has contacted the clubhouse managers of every stadium where the Yanks will visit and asked that all candy and ice cream be removed before they come to town.
Not sure about the point of this ban; but judging by Colon's signature on his 2004 Bowman card, he's a 10 year old trapped in a 35 year old's body and would NOT have been happy with it.
In other Bad Baseball news from Wednesday night...
San Diego Padres closer Trevor Hoffman blew a save opportunity against the San Francisco Giants when he allowed a solo homer to Benji Molina, tying the game.
Kerry Wood, though picking up the win against the Rockies, blew a save in the process for the Cubs. He allowed 1 run on 2 hits in an inning of work.
The Texas Rangers played a fun practical joke today by bringing a pitching staff comprised entirely of minor leaguers to their game against the Detroit Tigers... or at least that appeared to be the case. The Rangers allowed 19 runs to the Tigers en route to losing their 15th game of the year. Jamey Wright and Wet Littleton shone for Texas, allowing 5 runs and 6 runs, respectively. Lost in that mess of a game was Kenny Roger's poor start; he allowed 6 runs on 9 hits and 3 walks in just 3.1 innings of work.
