Bartolo Colon has been looking fatter than ever over the last year or so, but the 40-year-old veteran is somehow still pitching effectively. He’s off to a solid start with the New York Mets this year after posting an 18-6 record and 2.65 ERA with the Oakland A’s last season. On Tuesday night, Colon pitched seven scoreless innings in a win over the Atlanta Braves. He may have credited his rolls.
After exiting the game, Colon grabbed his gut in the dugout and did some sort of truffle shuffle. It looked like he was responding to something a teammate said to him. Whatever the case, we wouldn’t mind if that was the last time he did that this season.
Colon is currently listed at 260 pounds. If you didn’t already know that number was a bit low, you should now be convinced after seeing him juggle his fat. He’s a dozen cheeseburgers away from looking like this infamous NBA fan.
