Colon's fastball, aura dissipating

Bartolo Colon will never fit the classic staff-ace profile, no matter how many games he wins. In a world where long, strong and Mark Prior-esque is considered ideal, Colon is 5 feet 11 inches of pure Humvee. Even the Anaheim Angels' team media guide lists him at 250 pounds. Given the natural tendency for teams to cheat on the generous side, that's a tad worrisome.
