Former Cy Young Award winner Bartolo Colon told a newspaper in the Dominican Republic that the Yankees are one of three teams that have expressed interest in him.
Colon has not pitched in the major leagues since July 24, 2009, but the 37-year-old has been working on a comeback in the Dominican Winter League. The Rangers and Indians also have shown interest, according to Colon.
“I’ll go with the one that signs me,” Colon told El Dia.
Hmm, why wouldn’t you go with the one that doesn’t sign you?
I’m fairly certain Colon’s past the point of being an effective MLB pitcher, but since Boston’s already clinched the AL East it doesn’t matter. 2011 is just going to be a string of 162 meaningless games, so at least we can have fun with his name and headlines. Maybe the Yankees should trade for Chien-Ming Wang while they’re at it.
