Of course we know you are joking.
But think about this for a second:
The Twins need pitching. They take a flier on Colon, who has had a wonderful career, and is coming off 4 really solid season's with the Mets. However, he is having a poor season with the Braves, and at age 44, some of the jokes about him defying age and odds seem to be catching up. And there is a mixed bag of vitriol and "meh" when the Twins sign him.
His first couple games he actually looks good for 4 innings or so, but then loses it. And we're all pretty much in the "meh" to WTF area. And then be pitches downright awesome the last e games, and we have a whole different interpretation of WTF. He's pitching surprisingly well. (Maybe not so surprising when you look at his career and the past 4 seasons). He's showing what "pitching" is about vs throwing, and he's having FUN while doing so.
His experience, his knowledge, his FUN being out there is infectious, IMO. I know that I have been influenced as a fan. Could it be that the "meh" signing of Colon is really the "buy" transaction this team needed?
"Nice catch Hayes...don't ever f*****g do it again."
