what do bartolo colon and jose bautista have in common?
in his first 4 big league seasons, bautista hit 16, 15, 15, and 13 home runs. then out of nowhere he hit 54 bombs last year, and now he's hit 20 more already this season. how does a guy who's been totally average for 4 years suddenly become the greatest slugger in baseball at age 29?
colon did not pitch in major league baseball last year. yesterday he threw a complete game shoutout. two weeks ago he tossed 8 shoutout innings. the last time he'd done that was in 2006. the last time he'd even PITCHED 8 innings in a game was in 2007. he's 38 years old.
anyway, the answer is obvious: they're both dominican. that and they're both on the new super secret undetectable steroid.
