Countdown to Indians’ Opening Day – 40 – Bartolo Colon

February 17, 2018 |

While the offseason has been historically slow and the winter has crawled along at an even slower pace, we at Did The Tribe Win Last Night look ahead to the warmer days of the 2018 season by remembering Tribe players past and present.

Countdown to Opening Day – 40 days

There was a point in time nearly a decade ago that the professional career of Bartolo Colon appeared to be at its end. Somehow, with a fraction of the stuff that he had when he hit the pro game with the Cleveland Indians in 1993, he has stayed in the game, been a serviceable pitcher, and is relatively beloved by fans across the nation and the world.

Sure, he has had a long and sometimes successful Major League career, keeping his name in the news during springs and summers since debuting with the Cleveland Indians in 1997. But now, many years removed from a slimmer, more dominant flame-throwing version of himself, Colon now looks like an everyman, resembling more of a middle-aged man who had let himself go and now is attempting to squeeze his dad bod into a pair of baseball pants during some sort of midlife crisis at a winter fantasy camp.

Countdown to Opening Day – 40

There is something about Bartolo Colon that makes him beloved by fans across the nation and the world.

Sure, he has had a long and sometimes successful Major League career, keeping his name in the news during springs and summers since debuting with the Cleveland Indians in 1997. But now, many years removed from a slimmer, more dominating flame-throwing version of himself, Colon now looks like an everyman, resembling more of a middle-aged man who had let himself go and now is attempting to squeeze himself into a pair of baseball pants in some sort of midlife crisis.

Colon takes the brunt of the jokes for being out of shape and being a really, really lousy looker while standing in the batter’s box.

But the joke’s on you – the 43-year-old right-hander signed a $12.5 million deal in November to join the starting rotation of the Atlanta Braves, providing lots and lots of life experience and veteran leadership to a young team, now constructed by John Hart, a very familiar face for Colon from his time in Cleveland.

Indians Host Reigning NL Champ Mets for First Time Since 2013

April 15, 2016 |

For the first time since 2004, a reigning National League championship club will make an appearance at Progressive Field as the New York Mets come to Cleveland to take on the Indians in a three-game weekend set.

The last time the Indians faced the reigning NL champs in the regular season was in a three-year stretch from 2010 to 2012 when they went on the road to face Philadelphia, San Francisco, and St. Louis, respectively. They last hosted the senior circuit kings in 2004, when the Tribe dropped two of three to the 2003 World Series winners, the Florida Marlins, from June 8 to June 10. Read More
