In 2005, Bartolo Colon was one of the best pitchers in baseball and won the American League Cy Young Award as a member of Anaheim Angels. Now he’s everyone’s favorite fat pitcher.

The thing is, Colon is still an effective pitcher, although he’s not on the level he once was. His career has been hampered by weight issues and a 50-game suspension, but it’s almost as if now he embraces the extra pounds. At 42 years old, he doesn’t have a whole lot left, but as long as he hangs around, he will be loved by baseball fans.
