Despite Struggles, No Cause For Concern With Colon

There is no way around it: Over the past two weeks, Bartolo Colon has been dreadful. Over that span, he has made three starts, allowing 19 runs (17 earned) on 26 hits in just 15.1 innings. His last two starts have been especially bad, with Colon allowing six and then nine runs. Last night, he went less that five innings for the first time all season. All of this comes at a time when...

The Secret To Bartolo Colon’s Success

Bartolo Colon has a secret, but not for long. When the New York Mets signed Colon to a two-year, $20 million deal prior to the 2014 season, fans and the media scoffed at investing in an aging veteran pitcher. Colon is now 41, but honestly, his physique suggests he’s closer to 55. What we saw — an out-of-shape pitcher with a large waistline and legs like small oak trees — was...

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...
