Bartolo Colon: Mets only team to offer a second year


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/15/2014) The only two-year offer received by 40-year-old right-hander Bartolo Colon as a free agent this offseason motived him to sign with the Mets.

"I really left it up to my agent," he told ESPN. "I trusted in him to find a good team that would be a good fit for me. Other teams had one-year offers. The second year really sealed the deal for me with the Mets."

One might believe despite his age that he was worth a second year. He was a Cy Young Award candidate in 2013 with Oakland, posting an 18-6 record and 2.65 ERA. Control was a key - he waked just 29 in 190 1/3 innings.
