See what I did there, mixing up the name Colon and a surgery with the same name? Man, I'm a genius. I'm sure no one's ever done that before.
Anyway, the Sox signed Bartolo Colon to a low-risk, high reward minor league deal. This is a brilliant move.
Seriously, Colon is just three years (and about eighty pounds) removed from a "Cy Young" season. I put that in quotes because he didn't deserve it, but whatever. It was a very good season.
Next we're going to hear about "how great he looks" in spring training, and "how he really dedicated himself to his conditioning" in the offseason. I can't wait for that shit.
Oh, and I can't wait for his 1.62 WHIP and .857 OPSA.
But this really is a move that can pay huge dividends. Just like that Wade Miller deal.
