This is a very close deal. Considering it is not a keeper league, I'd stick with Scherzer. Greinke is coming off an injury, and Scherzer has been phenomenal this year. It is no fluke, the Kid has heat and some plus off-speed stuff to complement it. Being backed by the best hitter in the league in Miguel Cabrera has to feel nice too. Bottom Line: Greinke may end up better, but Scherzer also has the stuff to be great and carries less risk this year. Splitting hairs though.

Please help me as well: viewtopic.php?f=26&t=430068

I would take Scherzer as well. Greinke was pretty bad last year and unless he only pitches well when he has something to play for, I would be worried. Actually either way I would be worried. The Brewers defense is pretty bad so whatever he might have gained by pitching in the NL, is lost because of the team behind him.
