Who do you think would offer more value as a Yankee next year, Colon or Pettitte? Although many Yankee fans are adement about Pettitte staying thanks to his great post-season, I don't totally see it as a big loss if we lose him to Houston and sign Colon. I mean, Pettitte has been shaky in post-season for years, as evident by his career 4.50 ERA. This post-season year was an exception more than anything. With Bartolo, the Yanks would be getting a flamethrower, and those sort of guys are the ones that many scouts believe win games in the playoffs.

Pettite has a carrer 4.05 post season ERA not 4.50.

It has to do with more than stats. I, being a Yankee fan, want Pettite back because it is good to show a little loyalty and he deserves to be rewarded after last years postseason.

I have no problem with Colon, but Id rather have Pettite.

Personally, I've always preferred Colon over Pettitte, but it would not hurt the Yankees in the least to have a lefty on the mound.

Any Yankee fans want to give some opinions?

Yeah I gotta agree, I'm not a Colon fan either. I had him in a keeper league last year and tried desperately to trade him before the season. I almost gave him up for Schmidt (unheard of at the time) and then Colon was a flop and Schmidt was #1 in baseball...I guess I learned my lesson. Go with your gut.

If I were the Yankees I'm not so sure I'd want either one :-o but Pettitte has had success in NY so I'd go with him.

Colon and Pettitte are fairly close, at least era wise.

Career era+
Colon 121
Andy 117

Colon is a year younger with 400 fewer innings. I can see NY fans sticking with whats familiar (Pettitte), although he has what seems like a cult following, since they never remember his failures. In fantasy and in real bb, i would prefer Colon, but the lefty issue is valid for NY.

Finally! I was wondering if I had lost my mind arguing the Arod/Manny, and the Loaiza situations. :-S

Now I know I'm not crazy. Thanks Hootie! :-) Lol. :-b

I remember his failures but when people quote stats as you do, it helps to look closer. He has had a few stinkers that really skew the stats. I like Pettitte because he proved this year again that he can pitch well in a big game. He has also proven that he can pitch in NY. That can't be said about Colon. I also ;-D the lefty issue although he is better against righties.

I know that there are more teams in the AL than NY and Boston but isn't Boston's all-world rotation all righty as well. 8-o
