Mets Morning News: Bartolo is on board

USA TODAY Sports

Your Sunday morning dose of New York Mets and Major League Baseball news, notes, and links.

Meet the Mets

The Mets announced the signing of righty Bartolo Colon last night after he presumably passed his physical. Colon is a medical miracle, writes Marc Carig, after he saved his career with a controversial stem cell treatment. At ESPN's Sweetspot blog, Tommy Rancel points out that Colon is a one-trick pony but says that the Mets should enjoy him.

Around the Majors

A group is trying to get a Major League Baseball team back in Montreal and they'd use a brand new stadium to lure a team up there.

At Hardball Talk, Craig Calcaterra ranked MLB managers by handsomeness. Terry Collins didn't do very well.

Mike Pelfrey has agreed to a two-year deal worth $11 million. If you don't like the Bartolo Colon deal, maybe this news will help to change your mind.

Gavin Floyd is nearing a contract with the Braves. The veteran pitcher has Tommy John surgery last May.

Rob Neyer asks what happens if Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez aren't able to play this year?
