BARTOLO COLON NEWS

Perchance To Dream

I’m trying to figure out of Wilmer Flores’ two HR’s and six RBI are a stepping stone to the everyday shortstop job in 2015, or a sure sign that Brad Penny should retire.

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.
