Bartolo Colon, 42, is Getting Ready for 2016 with Ropes

Baseball Is Fun

When he’s not making simultaneously amazing and hilarious plays in the field, New York Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon is doing relatively impressive things on the mound. Although he pitched the 2015 season at age 42, Colon posted his third straight year with at least 190 innings and a 2.5 WAR. Guys half his age couldn’t do that.
