Ace pitcher Bartolo Colon (A.L. Cy Young Award winner in '05 with the L.A. Angels!) always seemed to me to resemble fabled batsman Manny Ramirez (pictured here with the Boston Red Sox). People sure must have mixed them up a lot when the two friends and fellow countrymen (Dom. Rep.) played together for the Cleveland Indians. Now that Bartolo, injury-prone the past few years, has been picked up by the Red Sox organization you may see them playing together if he gets well, but I doubt there will be much confusion with Manny nowadays since Senor Bartolo has become so rotund and bloated that he looks more like Andre the Giant every day.
