    Colon or Escobar

    In an ESPN 5x5 roto league, my current SPs are:

    Garcia
    Mussina
    Sabathia
    Wolf (IR)
    Zito
    Radke
    Leiter
    Colon

    Pretty solid, except for Colon. Mussina and Zito are improving after rough starts, but Colon is getting progressively worse. And there is some speculation that he might be hurt.

    I plan on replacing him with Kelvim Escobar, who is on waivers. The two have almost identical K ratios, but Escobar's ERA and WHIP are much lower.

    The question is, should I try to trade Colon first, or should I just cut and run? I need closers (a premium in this league), but I don't know if I could get a decent one in exchange.

    You should be able to get a closer in return for Colon, but who then, would you cut to pick up Escobar, or would you just stay with what you have?

    reports are that Colon is throwing way more soft stuff in an attempt to fool the hitters since his velocity is so down. Upwards to 80% of the time.

    He's killing me in my league
