It's somewhat difficult to imagine now, particularly when looking at the GIF above, but there was a time when the MLB's most lovable fat man, Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon, was sort of not fat. With this in mind, we've decided to go back to the late 90s to celebrate Throwback Thursday. It was a magical time when MTV was king, the economic outlook was positive and Bartolo Colon was in shape, pretty much.
