Bartolo Colon Newsbeat

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.

NYP: Bartolo Colon told Nationals: ‘Throw it down the middle, [I’m] not swinging’

I paid good $ to see BartoLOLo swing the bat at Nats Park and instead this happened:

Colon later admitted he has battled lower-back soreness for the last two-plus weeks. Not wanting to risk aggravating the back, he kept the bat on his shoulder and was called out on strikes three times.

“I thought it wasn’t worth it to swing,” Colon said. “I swing at the balls pretty hard and I thought, ‘Not worth making my back worse,’ so I told their catcher from the beginning, ‘Just throw it right down the middle, [I’m] not swinging.’ ”

Also, take note:

WOR radio will rebroadcast Game 6 of the 1986 World Series (with play by play from Bob Murphy and Gary Thorne) on Thursday at 7 p.m. The Mets will celebrate the 30th anniversary of that World Series title — the franchise’s most recent — this weekend.

#TooSoon, Jimmy?

Rovell: New Bartolo Colon bobblehead also features bobble stomach

Watch it wiggle, see it jiggle…

On Thursday night, Clark Toys posted an offering from Forever Collectibles: a commemorative Bartolo Colon home run bobblehead that also has a bobble stomach.

In less than 24 hours, Clark Toys has sold more than 500 of them.

“Most of the bobbleheads we sell are limited to 360 pieces and they take months to sell,” said Travis Pyan, managing partner of Clark Toys. “When the buzz on this item started this morning, we sold 100 in 30 minutes.”

Pyan said he can’t remember any athlete bobblehead that was ordered faster than Colon’s.

“In 2008, we sold 600 Barack Obama bobbleheads on the night he was elected,” Pyan recalled.

The Colon bobbleheads are limited to 942 pieces and cost $39.99.

Bartolo Colon’s double life with secret family | New York Post

And the public shaming commences….NOW!

Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon has been living a double life that gives new meaning to his nickname “Big Sexy” — siring two secret love children with a woman while married to his devoted wife of 21 years, The Post has learned.

The 42-year-old hurler has been dragged into Manhattan court by Alexandra Santos, 38, who claims the $7 million-a-year player is a deadbeat dad who failed to pay child support for their elementary-school-age kids.

Roscher (BLS): Bartolo Colon’s dinger mashed up with ‘The Natural’ is perfection

Better than the original…

New York Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon’s first career home run is a thing of majesty and beauty all on its own. Between the dugout reaction, the fan reaction, the announcers’ reaction, and Bartolo’s magnificent home run trot, you might think it can’t get any better.

But it can.

A Mets fan and video editor named Mark Evans created a mash-up of Bartolo’s home run and the famous home run scene from The Natural, and it feels so right you might wonder “Is this how it actually happened?”
