After effectively completing his first three innings Thursday night, Bartolo Colon gave up six runs on six hits during the fourth inning to the tough Toronto Blue Jays lineup. This article seeks to explain the cause of Colon’s struggles during the fourth inning.

Watching the Mets unravel tonight behind Bartolo Colon brought to mind the obvious questions: Should they trade him and what could they get in return?
Since the Mets, as erratically as they have recently played, are sitting on top of the NL East, there should be no rush to trade him. However, should Steven Matz emerge as the Mets anticipate, the prospect of trading Colon becomes...
Bartolo Colon, the portly, seemingly ageless 42-year-old New York Mets pitcher, is enjoying a remarkable season, defying logic with each successive successful outing. But what attracts even more attention than his great run on the mound of late is his often-comical at-bats. In fact, Colon’s wild, clumsy, off-balance swings — some that even cause his...Read More

Bartolo Colon hitting is must-see TV.
The New York Mets pitcher continues to be one of the best stories in baseball this season, as he’s been able to win eight of 11 starts despite being 42 years old and despite having a body that looks nothing like a professional athlete.

Bartolo Colon is a notoriously terrible (yet amusing) hitter. And this at bat resulted in a notoriously terrible swing from Colon.
Yet, the stars aligned on this chopper off the plate. Yadier Molina couldn’t field it cleanly. Colon reached base safely. The angels began to sing.
A Bartolo Colon infield single would melt the Internet, but alas, this play went down as an error on...
New York Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon, the 41-year-old ageless wonder, made Major League Baseball history on Tuesday night with his winning start in a 3-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.

How much longer is the road going to be for Bartolo Colon?
Many of us sitting here could have rationally assumed a surgical procedure in 2010, one which used “fat and bone marrow stem cells from Colon” injected back into his elbow, would have spelled the end. He didn’t throw a pitch that season but that was nothing new for the right-handed starter.
From 2006–09, he didn’t...
