Just some random stuff from this week's spring training preview for The Sporting News and something out of Sports Illustrated bon the Sox...

From TSN:

Best Pitching Acquisitions: 1. Bartolo Colon - White Sox. Acquired for three fringe parts, Colon will churn out his usual 15 to 18 wins and 200 plus innings.

From SI:

Under The Microscope, Keep a close eye on these pitchers this spring. Their managers will:

1. Bartolo Colon RH, White Sox: "Pairing this 20 game winner with lefthander Mark Buehrle, who won 19 last year, gives Chicago one of the league's best one-two punches. But last season Colon 29, who lives and dies with a triple-digit heater, threw a career high 233 innings and fanned a career low 5.7 batters per nine innings. He also had a September ERA of 4.97. He must reestablish his dominance."
