Red Sox Nab Colon for Some Minor League Action

The Red Sox are probably the last team about which one would think "boy, do they need some help with their pitching!", but they've added another name to their list of available hurlers in Bartolo Colon. Several teams, including the White Sox and Cardinals, had expressed an interest in Colon during the off-season, but the Sox managed to woo him with promises of a winning season and playoff contention and signed him to a minor league contract; if he makes the major league roster he would earn $1.2 million.

    When I saw it, I thought it was a pretty good move. Low risk, potentially high reward. Doesn't cost them much in salary and if he is able to eat some valuable innings, then it works out for them.
    Then again, if he comes in and gives up 8 in 2/3, he really wouldn't be doing much to actually help but that would be just fine with me... :)
