Smallthoughts: Rave of the Week…Bartolo Colon

Start here


Bartolo Colón

Bartolo Colon simply defies logic …he doesn’t look like a pitcher and we all know he can’t hit yet this season Bartolo Colon,became the oldest player in MLB history to hit his first career home run this May at the ripe age of 42. He also holds the MLB record for most plate appearances without a walk; in his 282th PA  (Plate Appearance )on August 16th, he drew his first career walk. They say things come in threes, so maybe his first career stolen base is in his future. Colón seems to be the glue holding the Mets pitching staff together. He is 12-7 with an E.R. A of 3.35 106 strikeouts and only 28 walks . He was supposed to pitching out of the bullpen this season and possibly used as a spot starter instead he has been the Mets most reliable pitcher all season. With injuries to Matt Harvey, Steven Matz  and others on the staff Colon has been fun to watch both on the mound and at the plate.
