Newsclip®: [Sports] Bartolo Colon may be having fun, but the rest of us aren’t | New York Post

"It's a tough balance sometimes, made even more difficult by the fact that we really can try to squeeze the joy out of baseball. It isn’t church. It’s a ballgame. It’s supposed to be fun. It’s supposed to be a diversion. It’s supposed to be something that makes us feel good. Hell, it’s supposed to make us smile. Mostly, during his tenure with the Mets, that’s been one of Bartolo Colon’s most essential charms. He spins eight shutout innings? He smiles, looks like he’s having a hell of a time. He gets slapped around like a stunt man? He smiles, shrugs his shoulders, realizes there’s always Next Time, understands he didn’t just surrender the nuclear codes. He steps to the plate? Yeah. He really smiles then, whether he turns himself into a corkscrew flailing at a changeup, whether he loses his helmet hacking at a curveball, whether he clobbers a James Shields fastball over the left-field wall. It’s comic", nypost.com
