In Bartolo Colon’s last 10 starts, his ERA is 4.80 (in 54.3 IP). During this time, he’s allowed a BA/OBA/SLG line of .303/.351/.507 (facing 239 batters). How bad is that? It’s “A.J. Burnett” material.
When you combine that with how bad Phil Hughes has been…Ivan Nova has to be the Yankees #2 starter in the post-season, doesn’t he?
