How did they even find him?

He can compete with Mark Prior and Brian Anderson for the 5 spot in their rotation.

He pitched for Tony Pena's team in the winter league and supposedly did well. My questions is wouldn't you rather have Freddy Garcia?

Wow. I honestly don't see how any scout could say with a straight face he can offer a MLB club anything of value. He looked abysmal on the Sox. Even as a Triple-A filler, I think thats pushing it. Freddy Garcia, while more expensive is a much better player than Colon is at this point.

Maybe Freddy doesn't want to go there? I don't know, I don't know why anyone would give this guy a shot as he looked pretty much done in 2009 and then quit on both the Red Sox and the White Sox. But with both Prior and Colon the Yankees have themselves an impressive front of a rotation circa 2003.

They found him at that deli next to Letterman's studio. Which is the old Ed Sullivan theatre, right?
