If Fielder is a semblance of his normal self, the Brewers might be contenders next year!!

The more I hear and reflect back I don't mind so much the deal we got for Greinke. Greinke would have probably mailed in the year similar to last year if he stayed...he's said on a couple different occasions that he lost interest last year. And now that we hear Greinke turned down offers to go to some east coast teams the actual number of offers we could have accepted was probably very limited and if thats the case I can accept the deal we got. :-°



....is it baseball season yet??? :-)

Word from most of the KC media people is the Royals needed to get Zach out of the clubhouse before they start bringing up the wave of youngsters who are waiting in the wings to take center stage. Even Billy Butler wasn't disappointed with the trade. I'm hopful again for the boys in blue, but 20 years of non-competitive play have about turned me away. But I'll give this a chance before I give up on them in the next two years.

Greinke's signing has in deed had some fantasy impact already. His ADP has risen drastically on several mock draft websites. One had him at 115 prior to the signing, and for the current week he is listed at 49. Another website had him at 85 and now he is listed at 55. There goes a great value pick.

Being able to obtain Zach in the 5-6 round to me is a great value. We've seen what he can do when he wants to. In that division, and with run support... well, let's just be glad it won't cost a round 3 pick like it did last year.

Eh, I wouldn't exactly say it's great value. It's not exactly a given that he returns to his 09 ways. From an FIP/xFIP standpoint, his numbers last year were quite similar to 08. This would indicate to me that perhaps last year could have been a bit of an outlier.

Whether or not that is the case remains to be seen, but I feel like there's a bit too much risk to take him as high as the 4th or 5th in a 12 teamer. To me, there are 10 or so pitchers I'd take before Greinke that would seem to be safer picks...

Very well put. My sentiments exactly. ;-D
