Add Bartolo Colon to the list of sufferin' Angels; Colon's back is hurting, which he blames on a two-hour bus ride from Tempe to Tucson before his start yesterday (Rockies 4, Angels 2). But wait! I thought Colon used to ride a burro all 'round the hills of the Dominican!

Well, he was probably smaller then.

In the same article, we hear that Kendry "Ghost Runner" Morales is delayed yet again, and that Bengie Molina is "running the bases, but not at full speed." I think I've heard that one before.

We get a little good news from the other voices making up the celestial choir today; Colon remains on track to start on opening day, sez the Register, and the official site notes that Darin Erstad may play today and Dallas McPherson may hit off a tee on Saturday.
