With Soriano on the way back, Robertson's success in the 8th and Mariano a given in the 9th, the Yanks main need for a Game 2 starter is someone who can go hard and give them a good 6 innings. Everything being the same as it is now, I think the best option is Bartolo Colon. I never would have thought this possible a few months ago but all the other starters make me nervous and don't match up talent wise with the number 2's that the other good teams possess. Burnett can ruin a game by the 2nd inning so forget about him. Hughes is still trying to figure it all out. Freddy Garcia looks very good as a 3rd or 4th if need be.
I can see Colon giving the Yankees the best 6+ inning option that they have available if the season ended today. Any better options available?
