Mets agree to two-year deal with Colon Less than a week after lavishing outfielder Curtis Granderson with a four-year, $60 million deal, the team on Wednesday agreed to terms on a two-year, $20 million pact with right-hander Bartolo Colon, according to a source. The Mets have not confirmed the deal, as it is pending a physical and not yet official. Colon, 40, should replace the bulk of the innings the Mets lost when Matt Harvey elected to undergo Tommy John surgery, which will sideline him for all of 2014. The 17-year veteran went 18-6 with a 2.65 ERA for the A's last season, striking out 117 and walking 29 in 190 1/3 innings. He made 30 starts and earned an All-Star nod for the first time since 2005, when he won the American League Cy Young Award as a member of the Angels. Colon is 189-128 for his career with a 3.94 ERA. He missed the 2010 season due to injury but has since gone 36-25 with a 3.32 ERA and 3.73 strikeout-to-walk ratio in three years split between the Yankees and A's. A three-time All-Star, he has also pitched for the Indians, Expos, White Sox and Red Sox. Colon will be joining a rotation that already includes right-handers Zack Wheeler and Dillon Gee, and left-hander Jon Niese. If the Mets do not acquire another starting pitcher via trade, they can either invest in a cheap free agent to round out the rotation -- a Daisuke Matsuzaka type -- or allow youngsters Jenrry Mejia, Rafael Montero and Jacob deGrom to compete for that spot. The organization's top overall prospect, right-hander Noah Syndergaard, is tentatively scheduled to make his Major League debut around midseason. (4 hrs ago | post #300139)
It was a Hemi powered GRAND Cherokee SRT & that was 3 cars ago, dude. Further proof of how fucking clueless you really are. Apparently, your only "connection " is Google Earth. Also proves that you know EXACTLY where I am & yet didn't have the cajones to stop by for a visit... Your wife drives a Chevette? I didn't even think any of those shitboxes were still alive... Absolute knockout huh? Yep. She knocks out anybody in the way of her daily dose of Krispy Kreme... (5 hrs ago | post #300130)

Man, she is one ugly ugly woman, both inside AND out... (5 hrs ago | post #300125)
Yep. Sure it is. Sure it is... (5 hrs ago | post #300124)
Nah, I'm not really expanding. The place next door might be going out soon, I might take that over & make the dining area larger, but that's about it... How bout, "BHJ Burger. Come for the food, stay for the drama..." (5 hrs ago | post #300123)
Tell her to call me, I can help her out. You know, AFTER she gets the cock out of her mouth... (Yesterday | post #300016)
LMAO! Sure I will. Sure I will... (Yesterday | post #300015)
Gee, that's pretty funny. Open for business for almost a year & I've already been voted one of the top 5 business in my chamber of commerce. Already looking to expand to a larger location, maybe even open a second place up north. By the way, what business do YOU own? Not DADDY now, YOU... You never answered my question about how your Daddy feels about having to support your deadbeat ass well into your 20's. I'm sure he's so proud of having a useless financial burden sucking off his hard-earned money. You have a problem with welfare, yet you suck off your dad's wealth at every turn. Hmmm... Can you say "hypocrite "? Can't help but notice you don't deny anything about your alcoholic Mother & the way she used to slap you & your Father around all the time, either. Hmm.... Interesting. Furthermore, what part of PANCAKES don't you seem to understand, shithead? I'd name a burger after you, but I don't think anybody would eat "The Supreme Asshole". Your wife's burger, "The Double Ugly" went over very well though. Glad I didn't call it the "Dirty Street Whore"... (Yesterday | post #300013)
I'm watching the repeat of the Granderson press conference right now. Is there any reason why Mr Whipple has to come up to the stand to point out the next person who has a question for Grandy every single time? Hey, shouldn't Clown be there cheering on his "employers "? (Yesterday | post #299997)
Weak post. Coming from a weak man... (cue the default "I'm a big tough guy" rant in 3...2...1...) (Tuesday | post #299984)
Again, HOW DOES ONE HIDE A WHOLE BUILDING? Where were your supposed "connections "? I thought you could "find me within 10 minutes". YOU POSTED MY ADDRESS, yet you couldn't find me? Fess up, Un. You know EXACTLY where I am. You just didn't have enough hair on your balls to commit... (Tuesday | post #299983)
I pay my workers very well. I can afford to. I truly believe the key to running a good business is keeping your employees happy. Good morale rubs off... (Tuesday | post #299982)
