Bartolo Colon, who turns 43 years old today, threw an excellent outing last night, going seven innings and allowing one run on five hits in the Mets’ 7-1 win over Washington. But that is not why we are here. We are here for the comedy.
The weekend is whenever you want it to be.
The New York Post reported today that married Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon is being sued by a Washington Heights woman who says she had two children with him and wants him to pay child support.
Bartolo Colon is now a power hitter, but he’s always been a source of wisdom and knowledge. As the wizened sage of the Mets’ pitching staff, his job is to lead by example. Apparently content with his teachings on how to dominate from the mound, it appears Bartolo has moved on to teaching his flock how to mash dingers.…
This is just a fantastic mash-up of Bartolo Colon’s delightful home run and the climactic scene from The Natural.
Over the years, we have been consistently impressed with Mets pitcher Bartolo Colón’s athletic feats. But nothing he has achieved meets tonight’s highlight, in which the Dominican hurler hits his first career home run after twenty seasons in the majors:
What’s the hottest look at tonight’s Met’s game, which you could call a gala if you were so inclined?

Clayton Kershaw rolled into Queens last night and took a katana to the Mets’ lineup, striking out 11 and allowing just three hits in nine shutout innings. But whatever, the real star of the show (as usual) was Bartolo Colon.
There are persuasive arguments for why the National League should adopt the DH and get rid of pitcher’s batting, but MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred thinks they’re hogwash.
For only the second time in his career, Bartolo Colón has an extra base hit as the Mets pitcher laced an RBI double in the second inning today against Miami. (That’s in 195 plate appearances.) We’re as amazed as you.
The Mets have approximately 356,000 followers on Twitter. Today, they asked 5,000 accounts—who, according to the fine print, must follow them—to retweet their tweet in order for them to give away an autographed Bartolo Colon jersey.
A weird, pointless piece of MLB history was made last night in the Mets’ 3-2 win over Baltimore. Bartolo Colon became the first pitcher to beat one team as a member of seven different teams. That’s according to Elias, which could totally be making this up and no one would ever check.
My boss Tim Marchman is making me write about the Mets, both because they have the best record in baseball and because people keep emailing about it.
