Keeping Bartolo Colon might be the best move

With the Mets placing Bartolo Colon on revocable waivers Saturday, the possibility of trading their pitcher is becoming real. Although Colon is signed throughout the 2015 season, many fans are calling for the righty to be traded, but the right decision may be holding onto the pitcher.

Colon Was Never Placed On Waivers

I hate to say I told you so, but much as I speculated on August 1, the Mets never placed Bartolo Colon on waivers as many had considered a foregone conclusion.

New York Mets: deGrom’s ROY campaign on hold

The New York Mets had one good thing going for them this year-Jacob deGrom. Now, as seems to be the norm for the Mets in recent years, the young pitcher is headed to the disabled list.
