I am proud to report that after Colon's recent throwing session he came out smelling good, no setbacks or pain. According to my sources, Bartolo is "progressing" and is on track, but no timetable to report as of yet.

A healthy Colon could mean a lot of things for the Angels.

First off, we could have the 2005 Cy Young winner at the back end of our rotation, that's not a bad thing, even if his velocity is less than what it was in '04 and previous seasons. His leadership and presence on the hill could be beneficial for the Angels who will enter the 2007 season as favorites to win the AL West and boast one of the best rotations in the American League, if not all of Baseball.

The emergence of Bart could also mean that either himself (in the final year of his 4 year contract) or Joe Saunders could be dealt for a much needed upgrade at 3B since Hillenbrand and Figgins aren't the long term answer there and D-Mac can't be counted on anymore.

So Halo fans, cross your fingers, say your prayers or make a trip to your local buffet with thoughts of a healthy Colon (sorry for the visual) when pitcher's and catcher's report in Feb.
Love to hear what you think!
