The Expos have exercized the $6-million option on 20-game-winner Bartolo Colon. With his value in the open marketplace, MLB could not defend not bringing him back at such a relatively low cost for next year. Besides now Bud gets to dictate where Colon goes at the trade deadline next year. Who's been naught and who's been nice? John Henry will probably get another present from the Expos. The man seems the perfect Smithers to Bud's Mr. Burns.
