Seriously, where is Bartolo Colon?

Thumbnail image for bartolo-colon.jpgSome people really took the news of pop superstar Michael Jackson's passing hard. Rehabbing White Sox pitcher Bartolo Colon may be one of those individuals, according to the always affable Ozzie Guillen.

The Sun-Times' Chris De Luca reports:

Guillen joked that Colon -- known around the White Sox clubhouse for being a huge Michael Jackson fan -- might have been consumed in watching the memorial service for the pop star and skipped his scheduled flight to North Carolina.

"I think Colon disappeared," Guillen said. "I think immigration is looking for him. I worry about Colon because Colon was a big-time Michael Jackson fan. He might see the TV and cry all day long. He maybe is in L.A. at his funeral, because I can't find him.

"Nobody knows how big of a Michael Jackson fan Colon was. I'm serious. He might be depressed a little bit."

Jokes aside, the unknown whereabouts of Colon could become something of a non-laughing matter if the former Cy Young winner isn't at a specific place within 24 hours.

He's scheduled to make a start for Triple-A Greensboro tomorrow. As of right now, neither the White Sox brass nor his agent have been able to contact him. In a perfect world, he needs to be in North Carolina tonight, preparing for the aformentioned start.

And there he is not.

This of course doesn't sit well with an organization that's paying him $1 million this season.

So, if you or anyone you know has any information regarding this missing man, please feel free to share. Kenny Williams & Co. would really like to know.
