Dejan Kovacevic reports the Pirates are looking at damaged-goods Bartolo Colon.

This part caught my eye:

"For two innings, he looked great," one scout said yesterday from the Dominican. "There wasn't much after that, but you're still talking about Bartolo Colon here. This is someone who knows how to pitch."

Two great innings? OK.

It sounds to me like Colon could take care of the 7th and 8th innings for some team. If we didn't have a ton of guys on the list for bullpen tryouts, I'd think the Pirates might be wise to ride in there and sign Bartolo. (Or can we say ... Bartolo!)
