You gotta go with the more proven Colon. Plus, as a number ! he'll get more strarts but I've also heard he's getting his weight under control and in the 2nd half last year won 12 games!

Sure he could, but I'd still take Colon.

As much as I like Colon, Escobar is the better pick.

The Angels averaged just 3.8 runs during Escobar's starts unlike Colon who got a torrent of run support. The WIN difference was just luck.

Escobar is only 28 and is still learning to pitch. His stuff is truly nasty when he's on.

Colon is much safer, much safer compared to the 2nd year starter Escobar.

another vote for esco, he was the angels best SP last year! how many people even reached 191 K's? IMO colon hasnt been an attractive fantasy option since he was in montreal for half a season.
Without ME it would just be AWESO.

Yea I'd take Escobar over Colon by a wide margin. Around 200k's can't be wrong.
