08:13 AM ET 12.31 | According to a newspaper report out of the Dominican Republic, former Cy Young Award winner Bartolo Colon has heard from the Yankees. [Colon] has not pitched in the Major Leagues since July 24, 2009, but he is still planning a comeback and said there are three teams interested in him. Colon told El Dia, a newspaper in the Dominican Republic, that the Rangers, Yankees and Indians have all expressed some degree of interest in him. "I'll go with the one that signs me," said Colon, who would most likely have to settle for a non-roster contract with an invitation to Spring Training. Colon was 2-1 with a 1.93 ERA in seven starts for the Cibaenas Aguilas in the Dominican Winter League this year.

I think the Yankees will just start the season with what they have and see how things develop. No reason to rush into a bad trade or overpay for somebody just to "keep pace" with the Red Sox or Phillies. They still are loaded with talent

Colon has not pitched in the Major Leagues since July 24, 2009...and the three years leading up to that were less than impressive...wouldnt count on him adding a lot to any teams rotation...

In this case, absence does not make the heart grow fonder.

The Yankees were trying to sign Bob Feller until they found out he past away.

Here you go Yank fans... here is your answer. Getting kinda sad with the media pulling out every unattainable pitcher (Felix) and every has been as Yankee possibilities.
