Greinke vs. Ed. Jackson

Postby Guest » Tue Apr 13, 2004 11:39 am

In my keeper league I like to leave one of my reserve spots for a young high upside pitcher just in case he breaks out. I have Edwin Jackson right now, but Zack Greinke pitched very well in his first start in Triple A and the word is if he keeps it up he may be in the majors sooner than later. My question is, due to the fact that Jackson is getting hit even in Triple A, should I take the chance on Greinke or stick with Jackson??

hmmm good question Guest!

I would say Greinke. Every mag has him rated just above Edwin and I think Greinke WILL get to KC before Jackson to LA, just based on SP depth and need.

I also think Jackson may get traded to get LA some more offensive punch, so stay tuned on that.

I would bet, as a KC fan, that Grienke is up here in KC around June 1, we have too many SP question marks and Greinke could be a great breath of fresh air.

If LA refused to give up Jackson to get Alex Rios I don't know what it will take to get them to give him up.

Thanks for the response, as it turns out CBS Sportsline decided to put a big picture of Greinke on the front page of our website a few hours after I wrote this, so I don't know if I'll still get him!! Those Bastards! :-[
