Is Bartolo Colon Preparing To Make A Comeback?
Is Bartolo Colon preparing to make a comeback? That is the question people are asking this week after comments he made to the media recently.
“If I had the opportunity, I would play in any league; go anywhere,” Colon said. “If any major league team wants an old man, I’m available!”
But he didn’t stop there.
“That Mets team was really something special,” Colon continued.
“I’ve played with 10 teams, but with the Mets, the way all those players treated me, how that entire franchise treated me, from the front office to the kitchen staff, it was amazing.
“And Mets fans are the best. In the beginning, when they laughed at me every time my helmet fell off, at first I felt uncomfortable. But when I saw how much the fans enjoyed it, I asked for a bigger batting helmet so that it would fall more because it was so much fun for them!”
Will the big man get the shot he is looking for? Time will tell.
