Bartolo Colon?

Is Colon going to turn it around, or should I just stay away from this guy?

He is streaky but he is a great buy-low candidate.

I have him, and no way am I trading him off.
I'm back. Sorta.

I agree. This is my second year with Fat Bart and he did the same thing to me last year, then completely turned it around. He's a 2nd half pitcher. That's not so say he'll be this bad until the break, but just be patient with him. He'll always get his share of losses, but he's a steady 17 game winner who strikes out a ton. His ERA and WHIP will also come down when he starts going deeper into games.

I know this is technically a trade question and that it belongs in another forum, but I'd appreciate any advice. I've been offered:

Mussina & C. Delgado


Colon, Derek Lee and A.J. Burnett

Seems that folks are pretty high on Colon, so should I say "no".

Here's my roster and thanks.

5X5 - 10 Team H2H League

C J. Posada
1B D. Lee
2B J. Uribe
3B A. Ramirez
SS M. Tejada
OF J. Pierre, B. Abreu, M. Cabrera
UT P. Nevin, M. Bradley, J. Dye
BN J. Estrada
DL M. Giles

SP J. Schmidt, B. Colon, B. Webb, C. C. Sabathia
RP E. Gagne, K. Foulke, F. Cordero, J. Valverde, J. Affeldt
BN C. Lee, H. Ramirez
DL A. J. Burnett

I have Colon right now (benched!) and he's frustrating me as well. I'd take the trade if I were you. He's been getting wins and his control seems fine (K's steady and BB aren't increasing), but they're just hitting him a lot. This is troublesome as I don't think of him as a let-em-hit-it pitcher. Mussina and Delgado would be good I think...
