The former Colorado Rockies infielder won’t go away — not that this is a bad thing, because he’s cool, but goodness gracious, Juan!

Juan Uribe is literally the ageless wonder — or, since he’s only (“only”) 36 years old, maybe it just feels that way because he played for the Colorado Rockies so damn long ago. Like, in 2001.

No, but seriously, he literally played for the Rockies as a 22-year old in 2001, hitting .300/.325/.524, and that was, like, two-hundred years ago. (Or at least it seems that way.)

I decided instead of doing some post about Juan Uribe and what he’s doing now (he plays for the Mets, in case you hadn’t been watching the Rockies’ series in New York this week), that I’d rather compile a list of all the guys Uribe played with in Denver in 2001, as well as the last time they played professional baseball.

Here you go.
