Uh-Oh...

The AL east race is now over. The Red Sox have signed righty/fatass Bartolo Colon to a minor-league deal. Well, that's it. Colon is a bona fide ace. He posted a 6.34 ERA (72 ERA+) last year in 99.1 IP. In the last two years, he has thrown 155.2 innings. Work. Horse. He has a career 4.10 ERA (112 ERA+) and a 1.33 WHIP. He also has a career 7 K/0 and 3 BB/9. Sheer dominance. Not to mention his robust size. He is listed at 5'11, 250 lbs of sheer musc fluff. According to reports, Colon was throwing in the mid to high 80's in the Dominican winter league. MID TO HIGH 80'S! On top of all that, as if it could get any better, he has done this all before age 35. That's right, he's only 34 years old. The Yankees are screwed. SCREWED I tell you.
