Burnett. If he rebounds well from his injury, he can be amazing. But that is a big if. Play it safe and go with Escobar or take a risk and go with Burnett. I'd take the risk.

I'd take Escobar. Florida's offense is nothing to sneeze at, but watch out when Anaheim gets rolling. I'm still not convinced anyone can come back well that soon after TJ surgery...yet.

Escobar... it'll take Burnett a few starts to get his control back but he'll get better.. ;-D
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

Escobar. I think Burnett's season isn't exactly going to be pretty.
