Hoping for the best from Bartolo Colon
Colon started 54 games over the last two seasons, averaged 171.1 innings per year, walked just 52 batters while striking out 208 and had a 2.99 ERA.
On the other hand, if Colon pitches like you could reasonably expect a 41-year-old, 5-foot-11 man who charitably weighs in at 265 lbs. to do, then the Mets have a $20 million problem.
I’m hoping for the best, and at the very least I’m happy that I can expect to see one player on the Mets’ roster who’s older than me.
