You mean Bartolo Colon’s improbable career turnaround was illegitimate?

Who didn’t see that one coming? 39-year-old Bartolo Colon, who leads the A’s in wins, ERA, and innings pitched, was suspended 50 games on Wednesday for violating MLB’s performance-enhancing drugs policy.

The Rise and Fall of Bartolo Colon

It’s really amazing the way time flies by. Seeing contracts that were once monster free agent signings expire really blows your mind. Can you believe Manny’s ginormous deal is almost up? Before you know it, you’re gonna wake up one day in Spring Training and see your squad bringing in Barry Zito for a tryout…Read More
