WATCH: Bartolo Colon Somehow Almost Beat Billy Hamilton in a Foot Race to First Base

Cincinnati Reds centerfielder Billy Hamilton is considered one of the fastest athletes in baseball. It's been rumored that he ran a 60-Yard Dash in just 6.5 seconds. This video purports to show him running from the batter's box to first base, a total of 90 feet, in just 3.64 seconds. He stole 57 bases last season, because he is ungodly fast. Conversely, New York Mets pitcher...

Reds troll Mets hefty righty Bartolo Colon on this hilarious play

It was two opposite ends of the weight-scale spectrum Tuesday. Speedy Billy Hamilton racing down the line in an attempt to beat lumbering New York Mets righty Bartolo Colon on a play at first base.To no one's surprise, Hamilton beat the throw to first as Colon did his best to cover. It wasn't Colon's fault, as the throw was not on target.But that didn't stop the Reds' Twitter account...

Mets’ TV broadcast shows back of Bartolo Colon rookie card

Friday night at Progressive Field marked a reunion of sorts for Bartolo Colon. The 42-year-old Mets right-hander (who will turn 43 in May) got the start against the Cleveland Indians, the team he started with way back in 1995. During the broadcast on SportsNet New York, it took a break to show the back of Colon’s rookie card from 21 years ago. @cmarkham20 did you see this?...

How Mets’ Bartolo Colon has become MLB’s lovable mascot

Perhaps Alex Rodriguez had it all wrong. Maybe instead of turning Mike Francesa’s radio show into his personal sounding board or granting a series of in-depth and revealing interviews to ESPN The Magazine, he should have put on about 70 pounds and grown his hair out. Maybe then he could have transformed his image, become known for being a lovable cartoon as opposed to a lying...

Bartolo Colon hit a home run in batting practice, folks

Bartolo Colon’s entertaining antics at the plate are the stuff of legend, although not in the most flattering of ways. But that’s all changed now — relatively speaking — after the 42-year-old New York Mets pitcher went yard during batting practice, something that amazed most onlookers. Because I didn’t trust my own eyes, I asked Kevin Long if Bartolo Colon indeed homered...

Mets pitchers practice ‘Bartolo’ behind-the-back flip

Bartolo Colon famously made news last year when he threw out Justin Mour with an unbelievable behind-the-back toss to first base. In case you missed the highlight or have forgotten what an incredible play it was, here’s a flashback for you. Bartolo Colon's behind-the-back flip toss to 1B is awesome it doesn't get better than this. — Elliott (@theaveragevoter...

Bartolo Colon’s contract has a bonus for winning Silver Slugger

Are the New York Mets in on the Bartolo Colon hitting joke? Maybe. I hope so, anyway. The big right-hander signed a new deal with the Mets earlier during the week, and as these things usually do, it was loaded with a bunch of incentive clauses, most of which will never be plausibly reached, but they’re there anyway. Perhaps the best of them is the one that gives him a $50,000...

Bartolo Colon slips and falls outside of locker room

New York Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon is a large man. At 265 pounds, he’s not the most nimble or athletic player in the team’s clubhouse. So when Colon wiped out after Sunday night’s 4-1 win in Game 2 of the NLCS on Sunday night, no one was very surprised by it. Colon was walking around outside of the team’s locker room and gave a quick wave to the media and a few fans. Then...
