Greinke

Remember all the pre-season hyping of Greinke? Ya, I am sure he gets a real big laugh at this.

Rotoworld:
Zach Greinke gave up four runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings versus the Indians tonight to fall to 3-14 on the season.
The Royals have now lost 12 straight games, tying a club-record set in 1997. The 12 straight losses is the longest streak in the majors this season. Some of the other current Royals may not to, but Greinke should get a good laugh when he looks back at how bad the Royals were and how he was 3-14 with an ERA over 6.00 early in his career.

That is like saying he was a good pitcher, he just gave up too many runs.

A 6+ ERA blows no matter how you want to look at it. As does a 1.5+ WHIP.

160 hits, 83 ERs and 36 walks in 125 IPs.

And a very unimpressive kd9 of about 5.5.

In April and May he had an ERA of 4.23, but had no run support.
Since then, his ERA is over 8.00

its amazing how bad the royals are at developing pitchers.

Must be following the Yankee playbook. Last SP we developed that was any good was Pettitte.
