Denver Columnists' Text Message Spawns 'Fartolo Colon' Nickname in Ticker

New York Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon has been the butt of some jokes this season already, but unlike some of his other blunders that were under his control, the latest crack at Colon is not his fault.

After earning his fourth loss of the season against the Colorado Rockies, the postgame ticker referred to the pitcher as "Fartolo Colon," a result of the nickname given to him by the Denver Post's Benjamin Hochman

However you feel about the nickname, you have to admit: It's quite catchy, with it rhyming and all. Hopefully Colon can recover from his slump and shed the bad jokes.
