I love it. His command has been great so far this year. How long can he keep it going?

I hope all year. He's my number 3 and I need him to be good.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

He hasn't been giving up the long ball yet, so thats a major positive.

I avoided this guy this year, since I traded for him last season and he killed My ERA+WHIP.

I will get a chance to see Bartolo Pitch next week when I go to the Yankees-Angels game next week

Look at his 2nd half splits last year.

He had a rough welcoming back to the AL party in the 1st half last year, but after that it was all down hill.

Solid low end 1st Fantasy Starter.

A few matchups you might consider benching him for, but he is for real.

No idea what caused it be his first half last year was awful and the 2nd half was pretty good.

1st fantasy starter? I don't know about that at all...I'd be nervous with him as my 2 or 3 guy...and especially not my 1st guy. :-o

I have him behind Schilling, Santana and Sheets (SSS!) So its comforting to know hes off to a good start when those other 3 arent (as compared what I expect from all 3). But im sure they'll come around. KEEP IT UP COLON!

I have Colon in a lot of leagues, but I tried to make him my 3rd starter on my teams. He's got a fantastic upside because he is a big K guy, but he can still fall off and not get the strikeouts. He definitely is looking good though and his value is getting pretty high. If you don't think he can keep it up trade him, but I expect a strong season from him.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
