    Sox Sign Colon

    Not a horrible option for the fifth spot if it comes to that, I guess.

    Love the thread title

    I would guess KW is worried about getting another arm. Having Marquez and Poreda/Richard fill the back of the rotation is kind of scary at first blush.

    Re: Sox Sign Colon

    Is this confirmed? If not hopefully we can get half a season out of the guy and hand the spot off to someone else. I just doubt the guy has the fitness to last a full season anymore.

    It's on FoxSports.com.

    Plenty of fat jokes to be had though.

    Re: Sox Sign Colon

    If John Smoltz can get $5 million but can barely throw right now...why not sign Colon? Can't hurt...it was going to be Colon or Freddy Garcia!

    Re: Sox Sign Colon

    Might still be both. We'll cobble a starter together out of their spare parts.

    LOL! Why not? Lots of experience there...maybe they could alternate months in order to stay healthy?

    With the legs of Bartolo Colon, the chest of Freddy Garcia, the arms of Aaron Poreda and the left hand of Clayton Richard, we have our fifth starter.

    Re: Sox Sign Colon

    I don't follow the Sox too much due to my dislike for their squad (no offense)... Something that I think many teams learn the hard way is that it's a more cost effective option (and productive as well) to have a decent AAA guy be the 4th or 5th starter as opposed to over-paying for a washed up veteran...


    I don't drink the Kool-Aid, and I am done making excuses. Only keeping it real...

    Overpaying? Colon is guaranteed $1 million. The most he can get is $3 million. This is ultimate low risk, high reward.

    And they're still going to have a young pitcher have the 5th spot.
