He's fat, does that count?


Is there anything else to be said?

Oh come on guys...you can't possibly believe the Sox "HAD" to go get Colon...

IF he even makes the roster at the end of the spring, he'll make at the most, 1.2 mil this year. Colon made $16 million last year...and I know he's overweight and a few bad years removed from it...but he did win the Cy Young in '05.

You can't go into the season with just 5 starting pitchers and expect to make it all the way through without somebody getting hurt, or some guy making a few spot starts here and there. ...The Sox don't (Bronson Arroyo ring a bell?), and neither should any other team.

I don't expect Buchholz to throw any more than 180 innings (he may not even get that many), and hopefully Schilling will be back in the second half, and they have Tavarez, who can get them through 5/6 innings here and there...but this just adds another guy to the mix. He's a very, very low risk - high reward type guy, and I certainly like the signing. If he helps out great, if not, no biggie. ...H.ell, the Yankees are paying Carl Pavano over $10 million to sit on the bench.

...and I don't know how many times I've said this, but the Yanks aren't sitting pretty either - they're starting rookies two of every five days, and you can't expect much more than 180 innings from each of them as well...if that much. They could use a little backup too.

easy pal.............you have been drinking the gammons kool aid..............bucholz can't pitch 180 AL innings. schiil is done unless he has surgery, and your bonehead front office won't let him. mr. colon, we owned him when he was hjealthy, so let him pitch. we have a lot more young hard throwing arms that we WON'T BE AFRAID TO USE than the big three. GET READY .........cool

Ha - I haven't heard from Gammons since the Series ...and if the FO thought it would hurt Buchholz in the future, I wouldn't want them to...and doesn't Joba have a very similiar program?

"The Big Three" ....I love it. They're ROOKIES - all of them. If you expect 15 wins and any more than 180 innings (again, probably not that much)...you're asking for too much. But I bet you'll tell me Hughes and Kennedy will win 20...

yah the red s*x fans do not realize that we are super deep with pitching prospects they do not have - hmm call colon a knee jerk reaction to schilling possibly not pitching this season, gee even schilling knows this - he knows that the only way for him to be effective is to have surgery, the red s*x do not want to pay him to ride the bench the whole year - so essentially the red s*x better hope that beckett wins 20plus games this year because after him there are alot of question marks and we will start with dice smay, everyone has seen him, he will start breaking down around after the all start break, to all red s*x fans, this is a new yankee team, young and hungry with a just as hungry manager - here we comewink
