View Full Version : Yanks going for 2 out of 3

According to an article in today's NY Times, the Yankees are hoping to sign 2 out of Pettitte, Vazquez and Colon:
Apparently, Pettitte is their top priority. Assuming he re-ups with the Yanks, who's the better choice - Vazquez or Colon? I like Vazquez because of his age, and because I think he'd be a cheaper option, although that's not much of a concern in New York.

If NY thought Boomer Wells was fat, just wait until they see Colon naked.

Vasquez appears to have a much higher upside that Colon, but Colon has shown amazing durability.
If NY thought Boomer Wells was fat, just wait until they see Colon naked.It's not so much the fat, it's the drunk and stupid part. That's no way to go through life.

I'd rather have Vazquez than either of the other two. While Colon has been an inning-eating (as well as other things) workhorse, his K/9IP has declined steadily. Vazquez has also been durable, with 4 straight 200+ IP seasons - plus, he has a better K/9 and K/BB than Colon. Finally, he's 4 years younger...

Younger, in better shape...

Vazquez (and for all I know all the players involved in the deal) hasn't passed his physical yet.
