BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2009 Lefty Jon Coutlangus has set-up man potential, but missed most of the year with an injury. Announcers are hoping he doesn't make it back for fear of what happens when you only slightly mispronounce his name.
2008 Hasn't this guy taken enough abuse because of his last name already? Did you come here expecting some sophomoric sex joke rather than a mature discussion of his near-sidearm delivery or his fastball/slider mix? Did you think we'd giggle like Beavis instead of pointing out that his future as an effective LOOGY is imperiled only by spotty control, and that if he could find the strike zone more consistently, he might be good enough against righties to earn a full setup spot? Shame on you.
2007 Normally, when you get some Coutlangus from San Francisco, you might wonder what `waiver bait` really involves, but this isn`t just your standard lefty with a nice breaking pitch--he`s a converted outfielder, still learning his craft. He was more than a mere situational lefty in Chattanooga and had a nice AFL campaign during the winter. The Reds have him on their 40-man, so he bears watching.
2006 Coutlangus is not something illegal you do to another person with your tongue, but it should be. Coutlangus was really old for his level. He`s got a good excuse, though, because until the very end of 2004, he was a light-hitting outfielder. The Giants are one of just a few teams who make all their failed positional prospects try the mound for a few weeks before showing them the door. For their trouble, they`ve now got a decent enough left-handed relief prospect. Considering what situational lefties make in the majors these days, it`s a worthwhile investment.

2010-01-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Do Jon Coutlangus and Doug Fister ever get to pitch on the same team together - it would be a shame for that treasure-trove of single-entendres to go untapped.
(David from bloomington, indiana)
Oh, I don't know. There's a quite a bit to be said of players who defy Bermanisms. Unless of course HBO moves into broadcasting baseball... (Christina Kahrl)
