Pitching update

Bartolo Colon couldn’t have been much more efficient than he was in the first inning of Wednesday’s Cactus League game against the A’s. The burly right-hander retired Rajai Davis, Orlando Cabrera and Mark Ellis on three pop ups on six pitches, four of which were strikes.

Meanwhile, Mark Buehrle threw 40 tosses Wednesday at intervals of 60, 90 and 120 feet and reported absolutely no problems after the session. Buehrle starts Tuesday against Colorado and will be on track to start on Opening Day against the Royals–his seventh such start, tying Billy Pierce’s franchise mark. 


Why-oh-why can Colon pitch for EVERYONE but the Red Sox??


Colon was injured for half of late last season. When he’s healthy he is nasty! Let’s remember his Cy young year AFTER he left Chicago?! Cooper is the best at working kinks and also at strengthening a pitcher with issues. Let’s give the big man the benefit of a doubt. He is a better option than Clayton( last thru a batting order 1 time)Richard…. ask yourself this….if Richard was that ready or that good would the Sox have gone out and signed Colon?
