So happy I traded for him earlier in the season. Dude is a stud.

Top5 SP ROS? Or just Top10? :lol:

this is going to be vintage 2009 KC greinki numbers look really similar to that year

Tough to except one of the greatest pitching seasons of the past decade again, but I do think he's a top 5 guy. He has to be one of the smartest pitchers in the league. He had one rough patch after coming back from the collarbone last year, but since then he has been the most consistent in the league.

Also, he's an awesome character. Very fun to root for.

Not that I'm saying he is a lock to continue at this pace, but...

K/9

2009: 9.5

2014: 11.0

K/BB

2009: 4.7

2014: 5.5

ERA

2009: 2.16

2014: 2.09

WHIP

2009: 1.09

2014: 1.11

And for fantasy purposes, I'd be surprised if he doesn't hit 16+ wins.

Zack hasn't been too crisp regardless of some errors. Puig made one of the best catches of the year to rob a double. Greinke threw around 100 pitches to get through 5ip. And he gave up a double to Jon Niese. Simply put, Zack did well to come out of here with 1 er. He should bounce back soon enough.

Yeah disappointed with the lack of efficiency but thanks to luck (and Puig) came out looking much better than he was ratios-wise. He just didn't have it for whatever reason.

Off the hook now I see...

Ace performance tainted, but still a great game. Threw a 2-2 pitch barely off the plate. Could've been a strike but I only had one look at it. Next pitch 2 run homer. A rock solid 7.2 ip, 3 runs, 11 k's, 0 walks. 76:14 k:bb this year. In line for win #8. Next up, Pirates on Sunday Night Baseball

That could have been a strike easily but it was a toss up. Instead of 1 run in 8 its 3 runs... He's given up 8 homers this year and I think 6 or 7 have come when he is pitching in the 7th or 8th inning up over 100 pitches.

AT Colorado coming up. Tough game, and he held a 7.84 ERA there in 2 starts last year. He'll be locked into my lineup wherever he pitches, but I will be fine with simply a quality start and a shot to win in this game.
