It’s difficult to dislike Bartolo Colon. For Cubs fans, he has sometimes been something of a thorn in our sides when he played for the Mets (and to a lesser extent with the Braves), but since he was largely an AL pitcher for the bulk of his MLB career, he’s still the kind of guy you can root for.

Colon was trying to make a comeback bid early in the 2019/2020 offseason, with a variety of rumors circulating about potentially interested teams, but nothing came to fruition, and now with the current coronavirus concerns it seems likely he might be forced into retirement.

However, all that said, Colon recently posted a workout video online, and I gotta say, he looks fit for a guy in his 40s.

And if you are a Bartolo fan, you’re in luck, because he just released his autobiography last week, called Big Sexy: In His Own Words.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. Make it so.
