The Bartolo Colon Experience: Not for the faint of heart. (Wikipedia)
It was another bold stab by GM Ken Williams, as he acquired starter Bartolo Colon as part of a three-way deal with the Montreal Expose and New York Yankees. Colon had a good season for the Sox (15 wins, 242 innings and 173 strikeouts) before inking a large deal with the Angels, with whom he’d win the Cy Young. Williams brought Colon back in 2009, hoping for the same success, but got little for his troubles. In fact Colon got hurt, was overweight, and when assigned to a minor league rehab stint never reported!
