Someone stop the Indians’ front office, because they are en fuego! First Austin Kearns, now they’re in hot pursuit of Bartolo Colon. And that pursuit isn’t as easy at it used to be, because Colon may be … in the best shape of his life!

Antonetti said the Indians are indeed interested in Bartolo Colon and have been getting good reports from his winter ball exploits with Aguilas in the Dominican Republic. Colon, 37, has reportedly lost close to 40 pounds.

Wow. That’s pretty awesome considering how big he was the last time we saw him.  If he has also addressed that chronic quitting-on-his-team problem, he may be a genuine catch!

    Colon losing 40 lbs… isn’t that about 10% of his weight?

    Someone will give him a shot…but they shouldn’t.

    Hey, I’m in the best shape of my life—if you consider round a good shape.
