Discussion

Rivera, closers to watch

Updated: April 22, 2007, 10:08 AM ET
We asked the question on this morning's Fantasy Focus on ESPN Radio: Who would you rather have this season, Mark Buehrle or Bartolo Colon? I'll take Colon. Big Bart looked like his 2005 self on Saturday night, tossing seven innings of one-run ball in what became a victory over the Mariners. Then again, look what Buehrle did in his last outing! He didn't allow a hit!

Fantasy sports are about value, and one of the discussion topics on today's show was not whether Buehrle is a sell-high guy, but whether you can actually sell him for that much. Do you count a player's career numbers as more important than his most recent season? Is Buehrle really back to what he was doing annually, or was it just one good game? And why do we trust Colon off of one outing? His shoulder isn't exactly healed, he never had the surgery, he's just pitching through it.

My projections:
Buehrle: 12-11, 4.23 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, 110 strikeouts. Nothing wrong with that, I suppose.
