    After Bartolo Colon hit a homerun off of James Shields The Padres had no choice but to trade Shields. That trade ended up being the greatest in franchise history yielding the Padres Fernando Tatis Jr.

    Bartolo Colon might just be the perfect embodiment of the Mets. Bad luck and controversy follows him everywhere he goes, he defies logic and has memorable and sometimes ridiculous moments, but still stands. He doesn't fit in, and doesn't want to fit in. He is admired by a loyal and dedicated following despite plenty of logical reasons to not do so, and makes beauty in a way only he can. Big Sexy, he may not be the best Mets player ever, but no one embodied this team more than he.
    Sincerely, a Mets fan.

      @Bosstime 2021 yeah, even though I’m a Padres fan and most of the people on the stadium were as you said all the fans still went nuts. It was basically the only time I ever experienced that feeling of unity I guess, where no matter what we were all rooting for this one player

    I'll never forget being at Opening Day at Citi Field in 2017 when the Mets faced the Braves, and Bartolo got among the biggest cheers of anyone during introductions. It's the only time I can ever remember someone on the Braves getting cheered at Citi.

    I wouldn't even care about his age if I was a GM or owner of a baseball team, he's a marketable player that would have a lot of fans watching him and everything. The positivity of this guy is awesome and some MLB team should honestly sign him for 2022 to an invite to Spring Training at least and see what he's got at 48 years old

    • Jeff Finkbonner
      Jeff Finkbonner Year ago +5

      Especially signing him for spring training. It’s almost no risk to the team and generates a ton of hype and excitement both from the fanbase and from the young players. It would build a lot of team culture and buzz.

    • imwithyou38

    I saw Bartolo pitch at Citi Field but he was with the Yanks. I wish I could have seen him pitch as a Met in person. I still remember that game against the Padres when he hit the HR. I hit rewind for almost an hour straight, in amazement. The HR, Gary’s call, the team’s reaction, the giant Bartolo cutout held up by the 7 Line Army. On paper, Bartolo is a guy no one should like. But some people have a charm that lets them get away with a lot. In Bartolo’s case, he’s a complicated figure and everything, good or bad, simply adds to his legend.

  • Dwayne

    Fun Fact: Colon actually almost ended up an Expo a few years earlier. Before the 98 season, he and another pitcher were close to being traded to Montreal for Pedro Martinez. However that other pitcher, Jaret Wright had just come off a strong postseason and Cleveland got cold feet about trading him. Pedro ended up going to Boston for an underwhelming package of Carl Pavano and Tony Armas Jr

  • Kyle Evers
    Kyle Evers Year ago +6

    Your videos are always so well-produced, edited, researched, and most of all, entertaining. Keep it up man, love everything you do. Bartolo is an absolute legend even just for his antics alone. Gotta love a guy who doesn’t himself too seriously.

    In 2001 I sat behind first base at Safeco field and watched Bartolo Colon knock my Mariners out of the playoffs. He pitched the entire game without slowing down.

    Matt Antonelli over on his channel tells a story about going against Bartolo in a minor league rehab start. Bart was just throwing these insane 2 seam fastballs that moved all over the place.

  • JS99
    JS99 Year ago +32

    I'm not too sure how this totally works, but basically when you weigh more, you create more force than you would if you weighed less (assuming that you are as strong as you were when you weighed less), meaning that you would throw hard. This is in part why CC lost fastball velo

    • doomtrain
      doomtrain Year ago +7

      I mean you are driving most of your force using your lower body driving and creating a whip-like motion that propels your arm. I suck at baseball but love to dink around when I get the chance and after I gained weight even with it not being good weight I could throw a lot harder than I could as a teen.

    • Naru 'Sanav
      Naru 'Sanav Year ago

      @doomtrain That's because it's less to do with weight itself, and more to do with _mass_ and how it can be applied.

    What a legend! Despite swinging like an exploding gummy bear his homer was as crisp as can be.
    I still have no idea how his stats were so..... um decent, I think opposing hitters constantly underestimated the apparent local mens softball coach that was standing atop the mound.

    Say what you want about the scandals, but as a baseball fan I can’t help but like this guy. His longevity and success speak for themselves. He never played for a team I rooted for, but he’s clearly a gamer so much respect. I hope he defies the odds and gets back to MLB for a last hurrah. If Satchel Paige could throw 3 scoreless innings at 58 years young, why not give Big Sexy one more shot?

    June 20, 1997, Bartolo Colon of the AAA American Association Buffalo Bisons threw a No-Hitter,
    facing 27 batters in a 4-0 victory against the visiting New Orleans Zephyrs before a crowd of 15,496 at North AmeriCare Park in Buffalo, NY.
    Although brief video footage from that game is included above,
    the narrator makes no mention of what I'm sure is a night Bartolo Colon will never forget.
    Why was such an instrumental moment in Colon's career treated as if It Doesn't Exist?

    Can you imagine if the Mets brought him back in 2023 -- his age 50 season? Give him a million bucks to mop up for an inning or two during blowouts. The morale boost and excitement generated by just having him in the dugout -- not to mention whenever he took the mound -- would be worth every penny.

    This dude.Sometimes you just have to make way for the crazy. He provided me with many entertaining moments back when I actually watched MLB. He didn't hurt anybody. He didn't beat women or get into fights at the strip club or try to front as anything but who he was. I like dudes like that. I'm sparking up a "clove cigarette" for you my man. Keep doing your thing. Great segment. I subscribed because of it and I wasn't looking to subscribe to anything.

    I have always liked Bartolo, he is an amazing pitcher. I don't know if he will ever pitch in MLB again. But I would put him up for a hall of fame candidate.

    I was at the game in Minnesota where he became the oldest pitcher since 1995 to pitch a 9 inning game, he's a fun pitcher to watch

    I legitimately ordered a bartolo jersey off of dhgate after watching this. as a mets fan who has dealt with nonsense for too many years, bartolo was really a bright spot through all of it.

    Remember seeing Bartolo pitch for the PawSox back in 2008
    He was the fattest man I’d ever seen, lasted *maybe* four innings before leaving the game
    In all my learned wisdom, I never would have guessed that tub of lard would last another decade in Major League Baseball

      I was also at mccoy for his rehab start that year. I remember my dad says “he never balks” then he balked 2 pitches later

      Using baseball-reference, I found the specific game you were at: Monday September 1, against the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs; Colon went six, giving up one run on four hits, one walk, and one strikeout. He got the win in the 9-2 PawSox victory.
      The game I think I was at was on August 10, against the Charlotte Knights. Colon went only three (scoreless) innings, giving up a like number of hits and gaining the same amount of strikeouts. Funnily enough, the Knights’ winning pitcher was former Red Sox Tomo Ohka.

    To the young pitchers out there. If you want to have a fastball in the 90s, make sure you stretch (groin, shoulder, trunk,), calisthenics, . Once you got that, then you start perfecting "triple extension,"
    And bam! You at 90mph

    I remember him being a huge power pitcher back in the Indians days and loved the guy because he was the spitting image of the Indians mascot.
