In what isn't quite a head-scratcher, the Red Sox signed former American League Cy Young winner Bartolo Colon to a minor league contract.
The Colon signing is an insurance policy. I still feel like Colon has something left to offer but I'm not sure in what capacity. He'll be good if the Sox need a fifth starter, or if injuries occur at any point. Let's hope he shows up to spring training slimmer and stronger.
(Oh, and hat tip again to Tippecanoe to breaking it on OTM again.)
