It takes one to know one: Ray King debuts on Baseball Tonight, refrains from making fat jokes about Bartolo Colon.
Nope, you can't make this stuff up. Former National (and about 7 other teams) lefty Ray King appeared on Baseball Tonight last night to break down big fat Bartolo Colon's 2008 Red Sox debut. I guess David Wells was busy? Enjoy the awkwardness as Karl Ravech tries to frame the question: "So, Ray, at one time, you were a big fat guy. What was that like? As a pitcher, I mean?" It came out as something like:
"You're a guy who pitched with a lot of your frame as well. Is there any concern from your perspective about a guy who throws with that much weight and the effect it might have on him long term?"
All kidding (and fat jokes) aside, Ray actually seems like a natural at thisTV thing. Hey MASN, Ray King is looking for a job!
