dropping mark prior, woody williams, javier vazquez, schilling, randy johnson, pedro, zito, mulder, matt morris, oswalt, etc... thats idiotic. but bartolo colon?
other than last season, sure bartolo had a 18-5 season once with an era a hair under 4... but in this league, i'm basically liking my chances to run away with the wins crown... i'm up 6 and you can see my staff out there. i'm concerned about losses and ERA, not t omention strikeouts... and i'm over my innings limit.
sure, it's risky to sit on a dontrelle willis, and even brett myers in the wake of what i just said... but it's far from idiotic. what did bartolo do for hte last 3-4 starts before tonight? i don't think he's going to win more than 12 or 13 games this season, and well, again, dontrelle willis has pretty damn good odds to become a better pitcher than colon, i nmy humble opinoon.
i wouldn't have even replied... but this is like the third or 4th "i dropped so and so" message i posted where you called the move idiocy and proceeded to go on about proven commodities. but hey, thanks for the brutal honesty. just be sure t olet me know when you make a borderline move so i can weigh in =)
