What Is The Value Of Colon?

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 takes ridicule over his at-bats personally

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 The post Bartolo...

Bartolo Colon Rips Ball To Gap, Hilariously Trots Into Second For Double (Video)

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. That latter thing is why it’s so much fun to watch the big guy hit. Every time he comes to the plate there’s...

Bartolo Colon reached base on an infield chopper

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...

Bartolo Colon makes MLB history, also has misadventure at the plate (video)

  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.

The Never-Ending Saga of Bartolo Colon

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...
