08:14 AM ET 03.25 | On stuff alone, Barolo Colon is probably the answer for the Yankees, but it sure is complicated by the fact he's an older and less reliable option than Freddy Garcia. Garcia's biggest strength is his durability and recent track record, something [Colon] can't provide the Yankees. Garcia made 28 starts last season for the White Sox, putting to rest any concerns about the injuries that limited him to 23 starts between 2007-09. ... The Yankees could opt to keep Garcia and Colon, putting one of them in the long-relief role and cutting ties with Sergio Mitre. "Right now, I think I can do it," Garcia said of a potential bullpen role. "I feel fine. I'll always be a starter, but to make the team is to make the team."

You can never have enough pitching - even if only average pitching.

I like the idea of having backup for Colon. Garcia could be a positive backup

It would be a good strategy...Colon is a big question mark so having Garcia around would be a good insurance policy in case Colon gets hurt or is ineffective.

Just don't put CC, Colon, and Joba in it. It might sink.

Sergio Mitre is a total waste.

You know you suck when you can't supplant Colon as a #5 starter.

Colon may look good now but he has not pitched a full season in I think over a year or so.

Five years ago.
