No White Sox Agreement With Colon

THURSDAY, 9:21am: Rather than categorically deny the Colon rumor, Sox GM Kenny Williams gave a more cryptic response.  Scot Gregor makes a good point that Colon had been rumored to prefer the National League.

WEDNESDAY, 10:41am:Ozzie Guillen says the Sox haven't met with Colon's people for weeks, according to Mark Gonzales.  So maybe this rumor is dead.

TUESDAY, 10:03pm:Impacto Deportivo indicates tonight that the White Sox reached an agreement with starter Bartolo Colon, pending a physical.  We'll have to see whether his shoulder passes the test.  Impacto Deportivo has a good track record but often jumps the gun, so we may see some semi-rebuttals from the Sox.

Assuming Colon still has something in the tank, I like the move.  It has to be a one-year contract.  This is the kind of gamble the Sox need to pan out if they're to sniff the Wild Card.  If the big righty is able to take the mound, John Danks and Gavin Floyd would presumably battle for the fifth starter job.  However, Floyd is out of options so he could become the long man if Danks wins. 

The White Sox acquired Colon for the '03 season; he posted a 3.87 ERA in 242 innings that year.
