METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

The magnificent machinations of Bartolo Colon

Going into the spring of 2015, the talk around the New York Mets was rarely about Bartolo Colon, unless a remark was made on the need to ship him out.

Is the Mets bullpen a cause for concern now?

The Mets have been known to abuse the lefty relievers and have them pitch very often, but not a lot when they do. The seemed to have slightly solved the problem this season by bringing in three lefty relievers into the bullpen allowing each to be stretched out for more than one batter and still have someone to use in an emergency situation.

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...
