Braves reportedly sign former Mets hurler Bartolo Colon

40-year olds are the new market inefficiency!

The Atlanta Braves are wasting no time in filling the openings they have in their starting rotation. Just one day after they signed veteran knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, the Braves have reportedly done the same thing with veteran New York Mets starter Bartolo Colon, pending a physical….

Colon made 33 starts in 2016, pitching to a 3.43 ERA and coming just short of 200 innings. Jon Heyman says the Mets are “disappointed” they couldn’t reach a deal with Colon, but they probably weren’t willing to pay that much to keep Colon for one more year. (Though they certainly think that spending $13 million on one year of Jay Bruce in 2017 is worth it.)

Bartolo Colon’s face is plastered all over this incredible new shirt

I’m not sure wearing this will make you a fashion maven.

The shirt is a tad expensive, costing buyers $29.99, but it’s worth the money. You’ll just have to wait a few months before receiving it because it won’t ship until September.

Oh no!

McShane: Bartolo Colon named to National League All-Star team

For pinch-hitting duties, right?

Mets starting pitcher Bartolo Colon has been named to the National League All-Star team. The 43-year-old takes the place of Madison Bumgarner. This will be Colon’s fourth All-Star appearance and first since 2013, when he made the game as a member of the Oakland A’s.
