Bartolo Colon clearly knows something the rest of the world doesn't

Yesterday, the New York Mets announced that Bartolo Colon will be their Opening Day starting pitcher.  In case you lost track, it's 2015.  Colon was washed up with the Red Sox in 2008.  At the time, he was 35 years old.

One of the very first blogs I ever wrote on this site was called "Bartolo Colon might not be dead?"  That was over four years ago, in March of 2011.  Two months later I accused Colon of being on steroids.  The season after that (2012) he was suspended for steroids.

Somehow he returned and became and All-Star in 2013.  The following offseason, Colon signed a two-year, $20 million deal with the Mets heading into 2014.

And now it's 2015, and Colon is starting the first game of the season.  He'll turn 42 years old in May.  The guy began to lose his fastball nine years ago, in 2006.  There's a 100 percent chance Colon discovered a drug nobody else knows about.  Or at the very least, something MLB hasn't figured out how to test for.
