In their never-ending quest to piece together a starting rotation, the Yankees have signed former (very, very former) AL Cy Young winner Bartolo Colon to a minor league deal.
Colon went from winning the Cy Young in 2005 to making more than 12 appearances in a season only once since then. Rumors are that something happened during that 2005 campaign that mortally wounded Colon's psyche and confidence. Maybe his return to the Bronx is part of a 12-step process in his recovery. If so, let's hope it's step # 12 and he can fill a gap for the Yanks other than the one on the trainer's table. Hope springs eternal.
