Re-signing Bartolo Colon should be the questioned offseason move

Short of re-signing Yoenis Cespedes, it’s unlikely many fans will be happy with the Mets’ offseason. Surprisingly, one of the reasons will not be a lack of moves, as Sandy Alderson has participated in both the free agent and trade market. He’s doing his best to remove that “semi-active GM” title from his resume. Instead, it’s with the moves themselves that fans have...

FG on Fox: Bartolo Colon’s Historically Bad/Improved Hitting

With the news that Bartolo Colon signed a one-year, $7.25 million deal with the New York Mets, we once again have a chance to talk about the skill set of one of the most beloved players in baseball. Add onto that the fact that his new contract includes a $50,000 bonus if he wins a Silver Slugger Award, and we’re perfectly set up to talk about the most loved aspect of one of the...

Bartolo Colon’s contract has a bonus for winning Silver Slugger

Are the New York Mets in on the Bartolo Colon hitting joke? Maybe. I hope so, anyway. The big right-hander signed a new deal with the Mets earlier during the week, and as these things usually do, it was loaded with a bunch of incentive clauses, most of which will never be plausibly reached, but they’re there anyway. Perhaps the best of them is the one that gives him a $50,000...

Mets Working To Re-Sign Bartolo Colon

According to Marc Carig of Newsday, the Mets have now “stepped up their efforts” to re-sign Bartolo Colon for the 2015 season. Colon would serve as the fifth starter in light of the Jon Niese trade this afternoon. Colon would presumably move to the bullpen (barring injuries) in the second half, once Zack Wheeler returns from Tommy John Surgery. Colon, 42, has posted a 4.13 ERA...

Bartolo Colon Could Rejoin Oakland A’s

Media reports out of the Bay Area have 42-year-old veteran pitcher Bartolo Colon possibly returning to the Oakland Athletics. After a successful two-year run with the Mets, which had him leading the team in innings pitched and 14 victories in 2015, but working out of the bullpen during the postseason, Colon is not ready to retire. The Mets expressed an interest in resigning him...

Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon takes a hilarious tumble (video)

No, that wasn’t an earthquake in Queens on Sunday night. That was rotund Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon falling on his face. The Mets lead the Cubs 2-0 in the National League Championship Series. So far the only thing that has slowed down the Mets is the slippery floor that took down Colon as he made his way to the locker room after a 4-1, Game 2 win over the Cubs at Citi Field....

Bartolo Colon slips and falls outside of locker room

New York Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon is a large man. At 265 pounds, he’s not the most nimble or athletic player in the team’s clubhouse. So when Colon wiped out after Sunday night’s 4-1 win in Game 2 of the NLCS on Sunday night, no one was very surprised by it. Colon was walking around outside of the team’s locker room and gave a quick wave to the media and a few fans. Then...

Bartolo Colon takes ridicule over his at-bats personally

Bartolo Colon, the portly, seemingly ageless 42-year-old New York Mets pitcher, is enjoying a remarkable season, defying logic with each successive successful outing. But what attracts even more attention than his great run on the mound of late is his often-comical at-bats. In fact, Colon’s wild, clumsy, off-balance swings — some that even cause his...Read More The post Bartolo...
