Greinke's poor spring scares me.
Looking forward to back to back championships in 2011!

Not a bad guy to target but at the MLB level, he just doesn't look as dominant. I think he is good enough to be a decent pitcher but I don't see his upside as high as some of his peers like Lincecum, Hughes, Joba, Buchholz, Gallardo and even Bailey.

I'm a little worried about how many times he's going to face the Sox, Yankees and even the Blue Jays as he doesn't have overpowering stuff and likes to give up too many walks...

ill agree to that, but hes not getting anywhere near the hype of lincecum, hughes, joba, etc... and can be had a good 8-10 rounds after them.

True that... Guess he is worth the late round flier.

What does everyone think of Johnny Cueto for the Reds? I heard Jeff Erickson on the XM radio fantasy baseball show talking about this guy. He's not yet on Yahoo, but it sounds like he will be in the rotation.

I picked him up in my ESPN league, I'm guessing he won't be added to Yahoo until his first mlb game? :-L

Everyone will know him by then..

Gavin Floyd has the #3 rotation spot for the White Sox and has substantially improved. He's likely on everybody's waiver wire, and has the potential to have an ERA around 4 with high strikeouts. Ozzie Guillen was quoted saying ""Gavin Floyd has the stuff to be the No. 2 pitcher. Hopefully not too far away he can be a No. 1. But he has good enough stuff to be one of those guys." He's well worth a speculative late round flier.
