Postby bluefire7 » Wed Apr 13, 2005 9:50 am

haren has shown me some good stuff... and while i know greinke will give me good ratios, i feel that haren may get me more wins on the A's. which one will pitch more innings and have a better season :-? ?

greinke is the next closest thing to Jason Schmidt when it comes to reliability. He doesn't K a lot, but his utter lack of freebies tells me his ERA/WHIP are extremely reliable and repeatable. Haren is young, and until he proves he can reliably produce, Greinke wins this matchup by a mile.

Please. Grienke is good, and will get better. But do not compare him to a well seasoned pitcher who has seen the National League hitters for many many years. Reliable? So far. But he has not really pitched muched at all in the majors yet. Understand that I am not discrediting his talent...just pointing out his inexperience.

Greinke won't be terribly consistent, this year, I don't think. He is, however, probably the best keeper pitcher in the AL (maybe the NL, too). Don't get too high on him, yet. He's a lot more valuable if your league counts K/BB.
