Bartolo Colon outlasts Turner Field

Bartolo Colon debuted in the majors the same day that Turner Field opened.     Turner Field's now officially done as a major league field, and Bartolo's still going.   

I think that says more about the Braves and how they operate than it does Colon.

That is an amazing and ridiculous fact. 

In the first highlights I've seen, I've found the Braves' new stadium to be pretty, but also kind of uninteresting. 

You aren't wrong on that. I was there for their exhibition game against the Yankees and, overall, it wasn't that impressive. Yeah, it had that "ohh, shiny new stadium!" aspect, but..There was no personality to it. Maybe Camden Yards just spoils us...

There's lots of other great stadiums besides Camden. I just don't see much unique about Suntrust from the images I've seen. It's harder to add local flavor when the stadium isn't even local to its own downtown area!

Pretty surreal to think about. I guess the Braves are the first team I've seen go through three stadiums. I'm hoping when OPACY closes, I'm either dead or a very, very old man. As much as I hate the Red Sox, I do love how Fenway has stood the test of time.

His last name is kind of  neat.

 

Sincerely,

He actually got his jersey to include the accent mark last year.  It is part of a MLB program to reflect the proper pronunciation:

Shortstop Eduardo Núñez was sitting in the locker room at Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game last month when a clubhouse employee walked in. The man was holding Núñez’s jersey but calling out an unfamiliar name. It sounded like “Noonez.”

Beside Núñez was Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Canó, a fellow Dominican. He shared a tip: There was a new campaign, Canó explained, called Ponle Acento — Spanish for “put the accent on it.” Sponsored by Major League Baseball and spearheaded by Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Adrián González, it’s an effort to recognize the influence of the game’s Latino contingent by putting accent marks on the names on players’ jerseys.

 

Next initiative: get people to start saying San Diego using the proper German pronunciation.

Bartolo Colon became the 3rd active pitcher (and the 18th overall) to win at least one game against all 30 MLB teams/franchises.

The other 2 active pitchers that Colon joins in the  I Beat All 30 Teams/Franchises Club are Max Scherzer and John Lackey.

This guy just doesn't want to go away ........ the soon-to-be 45 year-old Colon took a Perfect Game into the 8th inning of a nationally-televised game against the defending World Champion Astros.

For the season so far, he has a 1.45 ERA over 18.67 Innings Pitched.

 

I don't think that he'll outlast OPACY, but I wouldn't put anything else by him.

In 4 starts so far this season (plus 2 additional games in relief) Colon has a 2.87 ERA, an 0.862 WHIP, and he leads the American League in Fewest Walks-Per-9 Innings (0.862.)
