BARTOLO COLON RUMORS

Colon Was Good Investment

Bartolo Colon gets the ball tonight for the Mets against Miami, and honestly I’m surprised he’s still here. I thought they would have dealt him at the end of July or August. But, he’s still pitching and leads the team with 13 victories, and if he gets two more starts after tonight could finish with 200 innings. The latter number, more than the wins, is why the Mets signed him...

Jayson Werth has classic response to being plunked by Bartolo Colon

After nearly getting hit in the head by Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon, Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth could only stare down Colon, as home plate umpire John Tumpane quickly ejected the 16-year veteran from the game. It was the second batter Colon had hit in the game and Tumpane had seen enough. So had the Nationals, but cooler heads would prevail for the National League East-leading...

The New York Mets Embarrassed Themselves on Thursday

The New York Mets dropped their 12th consecutive home game against the Washington Nationals on a violent Thursday evening in Major League Baseball. 41-year-old SP Bartolo Colon allowed six earned runs in 3+ IP, including two, two-run home runs to Adam LaRoche and Anthony Rendon.

Mets miss boat not trading Bartolo Colon

Surely you were aware the New York Mets were tied to trade rumors leading up to the waiver-trade deadline, with Bartolo Colon‘s name being front and center. With the Los Angeles Angels losing Garrett Richards for the foreseeable future, and them needing a quality, veteran arm, they needed another good arm for the stretch run. Heck, at this point of the year many playoff-hopeful...

Latest on Colon: All Quiet On The Western Front

With only today and tomorrow left for the Mets to try and swing a deal for Bartolo Colon, the buzz around baseball is, All Quiet on the Western Front. To begin, Mets GM Sandy Alderson summed things up as follows on Thursday: “I would say right now there’s a lot less going on than some people speculate.” Most of the early speculation pegged the Dodgers, Angels and Royals to...

Mets have options in potential deal for Colon

Bartolo Colon laughed when asked about the possibility that the Mets may trade him prior to Sunday's waiver Trade Deadline. A 17-year veteran of eight big league clubs, Colon pays so little heed to this sort of thing that he was unaware he even hit the waiver wire until a reporter brought reports of it to his attention. "Whatever the team and ownership decide to do, that...

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. So far throughout this season, Colon has pitched to an 11-10 record, 3.85 ERA, 125 strikeouts and...

New York Mets: Colon still possibly a trade target

Just because the July 31 deadline has passed doesn’t mean teams cannot make trades. The New York Mets and Sandy Alderson certainly know this. As recently as last year the Mets made an August trade in sending Marlon Byrd and John Buck to Pittsburgh. A similar move is possible again this year. Could Bartolo Colon be the replacement for Garrett Richards? Bartolo Colon, the subject...

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. Joel Sherman of the NY Post confirmed as much. There were assertions made that Sandy Alderson was willing to give away Colon to any claiming team just to get the salary relief and with no players coming back to the Mets....
