My draft is this weekend. H2H Keeper League. Keepers can be kept as long as wanted.
I should have a choice between these three aces: Grienke, Verlander, Felix Hernandez.
Based on our scoring, which follows, how would you rank them 1,2,3. I doubt I can go wrong with any of the 3, baring injury, but I'd like your input as to how to rank them. Thanks!

Obviously you can't go wrong with any of them. I'm in a similar scoring system. Because you can keep them indefinitely, I would say Felix, Verlander and Grienke. I love Grienke, but his personal issues scare me off just a little. viewtopic.php?t=405068
I don't think you're going to go wrong taking either of Greinke or Verlander really. We're talking about the 1-2 guys from last year, and the difference to this year is probably all small stuff that you'll have no control over anyway (or maybe not ....). If I had to pick I'd go Greinke - he's getting a lot less of those points from something dicey like wins (which is nearly 200 of Verlander's points). I trust Greinke to repeat the efficiency and maybe to snag another win or two, but Verlander has to win 19 again just to break even.
I agree --- Greinke's performance seems somewhat repeatable in the sense that even though he started out an immortal and finished strong in September, he was at least just "very good" in between ... which is why I could see him being very, very, very good throughout the course of this year, maybe snagging another win or two if the team hits better. WHo knows how the Tigers will support Verlander offensively. Felix is nice but maybe the in between for me, but I'd probably take Greinke, Felix THEN Verlander here. You can't go wrong though.
