That is a link to Baseball Reference’s collection of Bartolo Colon’s record against every batter he has faced over the past two decades and change, and it is as crystalline and appropriately uncanny a representation of what Colon has done and is still somehow doing as any of the individuated highlights that he still periodically throws off. Baseball has changed a great deal since Colon debuted in 1997, but it has also turned over multiple times; it is one thing to say that Colon started pitching in the majors when Bill Clinton was President of the United States, but it makes more concrete emotional sense, at least to me, when you consider that Colon faced Kevin Elster and Kevin Young and Jim Leyritz and Tim Raines and Mike Blowers six times each.
And some no-name rookie who will face him once in a September call-up and then retire 20 years from now as a future HoFer that will complete this mind blowing list.Freed Roger wrote:Jon Olerud, Scott Spezio, Matt Stairs, JD Drew, Paul Molitor
The 42-year-old hurler has been dragged into Manhattan court by Alexandra Santos, 38, who claims the $7 million-a-year player is a deadbeat dad who failed to pay child support for their elementary-school-age kids.
Colon — who has earned more than $100 million in his career — sired the children with the Washington Heights woman while he was also playing the dutiful family man with wife Rosanna and their four sons.
