Mulder's '03 season was cut short because of the hip injury. But he was having a very good year, career low ERA.

Colon would give you more Complete games, but will also give you more HR allowed, a higher ERA and Whip.

They are close but given Colons weight issues and the rumor about his elbow(Gammons column) I would go with Mulder.

IN MY OPINION I would rather have Colon. hes a workhorse, lost weight over the offseason. Has amazing power. Plays with a team that has a MUCH better offense then the A's. Also Pedro has been teaching him some secrets over the offseason! :-D
Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Mulder. It's all about the #'s and Mulder is better across the board, except for K's. If Mulder hadn't gotten hurt towards the end of the year he probably would have hit 160 K's like he did in 2002. So is Colon's 20 extra K's worth 1/2 a run drop between their ERA's? Nope.

I would rate Mulder slightly ahead of Colon mainly on the score of consistency. Neither figure in my Top 12 SP though.

I like Mulder a little more...basicly, just for the era...if CG's are a category, I'd go with Mulder too, since I'm not convinced Colon will get as many chances to throw CG's this year with the Angels pen being so dominant...there's no need to make him go 9.
