  1. I’m hoping for a Colon renaissance. But I doubt I will be rewarded.

    Btw, correction: “that may not be a compliment*”

  2. Any chance at all the K/9 rates sustain with extended outings? As you mentioned, it gets tougher going against hitters multiple times in one evening.

  3. In his heyday, Colon’s calling card was not hitting the high 90s until after the 7th inning. Of course, that was a dozen years ago.

  4. @ bureaucratist
    And about a million dozens of donuts ago.

  5. Any estimate on his fantasy value in a deep league?

  6. Why aren’t they starting Noesi? He’s being wasted in the bullpen right now.

  7. Pretty extreme Flyball pitcher, IIRC. Not a great fit for Yankee Stadium or the AL East.

  8. So they should never start him ever despite being a top 10 Yankee prospect? Seems like a pretty half-cooked answer to me.

  9. A million? Oh, you’re just talking about he’s consumed since the start of spring training.

  10. I doubt it. A K/9 in the double-digits is reserved for the Lincecum’s of the world. If Colon could get close to 7.0 that would be quite a feat.

  11. He is trade bait, and they don’t want to ruin his value by having his numbers explode in the majors? It makes sense because I don’t think he figures into the team’s long term plans. Trading him, and keeping his value high, is the most important thing to the Yankees.

  12. Cliff Lee’s Changeup,

    If that were true, wouldn’t he be in the minors, continuing to build his value? How does wasting away in the bullpen in a low leverage role help his trade value?

    It doesn’t which is why I’m so confused by this move.
