Gut Reaction: Padres 7, Mets 3 (7/29/15)

Bartolo Colon did not give the Mets a good start tonight, as he had his shortest start as a Met, going 2 and 1/3 innings, letting up 10 hits and six runs. The Mets could not come back, and would lose 7-3. The Mets and Brewers announced that Carlos Gomez will most likely be heading to the Mets, for Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores. Terry Collins had Flores play the whole game, even...

End In Sight For Mets’ Colon

Another game, another Bartolo Colon torching leaving the Mets with a few questions. How long can the Mets go with Colon getting ripped every fifth game? Since they can’t trade him now, can they swap him out for Dillon Gee? Will they wait this out until Steven Matz is ready to come off the disabled list? COLON: Ripped again. (AP) Colon at 42, hasn’t won since June 12, which...

Kemp, Padres' offense look to bounce back after shutout

Superb pitching has the New York Mets in position to regain the NL East lead for the first time in almost six weeks.

The Mystery Is Over For Colon

If you’re Bartolo Colon pitching against Clayton Kershaw tonight, considering the Mets’ anemic offense you can’t like your chances if you give up a couple of runs. Then again, if you’re the Mets’ hitters, you can’t like your chances with Colon on the mound. The Mets aren’t scoring and Colon isn’t preventing anybody from scoring and that’s a losing combination. ...

A public retraction: The Mets will miss the playoffs

Last week, I made a bunch of predictions about how the rest of the MLB season will wrap up, and I proclaimed that the second National League Wild Card spot would go to the New York Mets. Well, never mind. After they came out of the All-Star break and dropped two out of three to the Cardinals and the Nationals, I no longer want to put my weight behind the Amazin's. It's true...

CC & Bartolo: Weighing Their Careers

Heading into this week’s mini two-game series in Milwaukee, the Cleveland Indians hadn’t beaten the Brewers since June 13, 2001—a Wednesday matinee at Jacobs Field featuring a strong start from the Tribe’s then-28-year-old ace, Bartolo Colon. In retrospect, that moment in time—the summer of ’01—could be seen as a critical pivot point in the recent history of the Indians...

Keith, You The Real MVP

Some games are glorious. Some games are torturous. Sunday’s game was glorious in its torture. It’s the only way to describe the Mets’ 3-1 18-inning victory over St. Louis on Sunday, a game they needed after losing one because of a bad call and their putrid offense, and another because Bartolo Colon got hit around … and their putrid offense. Today threatened to be the final...

Pitching Can’t Be Stellar Everyday

Bartolo Colon has lost 4 consecutive decisions. He has given up 16 runs in 8 2/3 innings against the Cardinals dating back to May 20th at home where he was rocked for nine runs and 11 hits in 4 1/3 innings. He gave up 7 runs in 4 1/3 tonight, 4 in the first inning as he had trouble keeping the ball down all night. Anytime he walks 2 batters in an inning, it’s going to a long night...

New York Mets: who is their true ace?

The New York Mets have a dilemma that 29 other teams would love to have: legitimate pitching depth. The organization has done a great job in developing their young pitching prospects; although they have run into some injury scares, the team is primed to compete this year, while being in an even better position for the seasons to come. The Mets currently have Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom...

New York Mets’ pitching staff second half projections

The New York Mets find themselves in a position after the All-Star break that they have not been too familiar with lately, the playoff hunt.

Bartolo Colon or Jon Niese will start the following game and the series finale on Sunday. A final decision as to who starts which game will be forthcoming, but I have a hunch they...

Mets' Bartolo Colon: 'I feel good with the weight I have'

New York Mets starter Bartolo Colon is often ridiculed for his rotund figure, but he doesn't seem to care what others think about his physique. The 42-year-old righty is listed at 5-foot-11, 285 pounds in his profile on MLB.com. "I feel good with the weight I have," Colon tells the New York Times in a feature on the veteran pitcher.

Grandy and Trout and BABIP, Oh My!

Until my drive home from AT&T Park last night, I never thought the day would come that my feelings after watching a 42-year old, 280+ pound man pitch a quality start would be, “He didn’t really pitch well tonight. We never had a chance.” Unfortunately, this is the state of the John-Mayberry-hitting-in-the-six-hole Mets. Without looking at the scoreboard, it almost felt...

Stat Line:  6 IP, 3 R, 10 H, 4 SO, 0 BB Last night, Bartolo Colon pitched well in the New York Mets 3-0 to the San Francisco Giants as he allowed ten relatively soft singles coupled with poor defense both by himself and the Mets infield.  In this article I will discuss how Colons fastball command correlated to poor contact by Giants hitters and the reason Colon should throw his...
