Is reality TV star in Big Sexy’s future?
Bartolo Colon took to Facebook Friday night with a live video from his Dominican Republic pad as the free agent pitcher relaxed in his pool during the Indians-Blue Jays ALCS opener.
Colon, 43, who just completed his third season with the Mets, gave fans a glimpse of his offseason life with the ten-minute pool-party video.
The video proves Colon shouldn’t trade in his day job and try and give the Kardasian clan a run for their money. His best role is still on the mound for a major league team.
Colon, who was pressed into a bigger role with the Mets last season after the rotation was devastated by injuries, made 33 starts and went 15-8 with a 3.43 ERA.

Back on the open market, Colon made it clear to the Daily News last month that he wanted to be back in Queens.
“I hope I am here,” Colon told the News’ Kristie Ackert when asked about his plans for next season. “If they give me the opportunity, I would love to be here.”
The veteran righty has said he’s not ready to retire – and enjoy that pool full-time – as he wants to take aim at becoming the winningest pitcher from Latin America.
Colon with 233 career wins is 13 away from tying the mark established by Dennis Martinez.
