Colon started 54 games over the last two seasons, averaged 171.1 innings per year, walked just 52 batters while striking out 208 and had a 2.99 ERA.
On the other hand, if Colon pitches like you could reasonably expect a 41-year-old, 5-foot-11 man who charitably weighs in at 265 lbs. to do, then the Mets have a $20 million problem.
I’m hoping for the best, and at the very least I’m happy that I can expect to see one player on the Mets’ roster who’s older than me.
