    Our biggest presence on the mound this year

    By far. And judging from this picture of him in the locker room, I'd say he's probably the biggest presence we've had on the mound since the days of Sid Fernandez:

    Heard Terry Collins talk about him on the radio the other day. Terry was saying words to the effect that he expected Bartolo (I've got an old) Colon to have a positive impact on the young Met pitchers as they'll have him as an example to see how a professional goes about his business.

    Oh I hope not. Here's a guy who obviously eats too much and has a history of PEDs. Not exactly the example you hope to get from a veteran.

    Still, I don't expect Old Colon Man too have much of an effect on this team anyway. I'm very excited about our young pitching which should really start to take shape by June as we see the additions of Syndegaard and Montero. In the meanwhile, Colon and even Lannan to a lesser extent are really placeholders, even though we paid more for Colon than an APH ordinarily fetches.

    So Colon is really more than just an APH. He's an APH/insurance policy. Let's just hope they don't have to cash it in.

    I wouldn't worry too much about fatty, dollars to donuts he gets hurt running the bases or swinging the bat.

    He's just really fat. Like Jared before subway fat.

    I hope he doesn't. They'd have to airlift him out of the stadium.

    my biggest concern now going to Citi Field is being able to get to the shake a shack before they run out of shakes and burgers.

    That's fine but I'm afraid what you call "Mejia" Colon is calling "dessert."
