    Bartolo Colon

    Outstanding game last night for the 44 year old.

    On Friday night, he did it again, pitching a nine-inning complete game win to become the oldest right-handed starter with a complete game since 1994.

    He is my all time favorite pitcher, so I am so happy to see this.

    He is without question one of the game's greatest characters. I hate to see him go.

    He's been awful all year and gave up 4 runs in his CG. I hope he finishes strong though...

    I think I saw the other day that he has given up HR's in 44 different major league stadiums.

    He was terrible for the Braves this season.

    The guy has been fun to watch over the years. Just looking at him makes me laugh. He's always been a great athlete, especially for his rotund physique. He's hit homers, made some great plays, said a lot of crazy things, been in a few fights. Very durable guy. But he is approaching baseball's event horizon. About time for a Colonoscopy...

    He was awful for the Braves and was content getting a paycheck without putting in the effort.

    I respect his career but don't wish him well for the remainder of the season.

    A homer. He's hit one homer in his career.
