Meet the Mets
Bartolo Colon blew up on Sunday afternoon, allowing back-to-back-to-back home runs to the Angels in the first inning. The bombardment set the tone for a 14-2 defeat from which both Daniel Murphy and David Wright were ejected for arguing balls and strikes.
After he spun a gem during his last outing, Sunday just wasn't Colon's day.
After the game, the Mets announced that they traded catcher Blake Forsythe to the A's for future considerations.
Chris Young played like a monster let out of its cage during his first rehab game with the 51s. The outfielder seems like he's just about over that quadriceps injury.
