Poll Results: Colon To Last Through Trade DeadlinePosted: May 16, 2011
So the results are in on last week’s poll and the fans have voted that Bartolo Colon will last through the trade deadline. If he does in fact do this while continuing to pitch the way he has, Brian Cashman will look like a genius. Both Colon and Freddy Garcia (more Colon) were signed more as placeholders than anything else. Cashman was just hoping for them to last until the trading season (June and July) so he could finally make a move for a front-line starter. If he lasts through the trade deadline, it will be better than they could have expected and means the Yanks will probably be very much in the American League East race. Hopefully, this holds true.
Make sure you vote on the new poll: What will happen to Jorge Posada after this season?
