I'm holding onto him, but that's in a fairly deep H2H league where my pitching staff is shot. Keep in mind that his last 2 starts were against St. Louis and Texas (@ Texas). You would have been crazy to start him (or most other pitchers) tonight at Texas against a lineup that has been hitting the ball like crazy lately, and St. Louis is a pretty good lineup last time I checked.
His K/BB is still 2.7:1 which is very nice for someone as young as Greinke. If you take out the StL and Tex starts, his ERA is 3.12. Obviously, you can say that for most pitchers and their ERA is going to look a lot better, but I think for Greinke it's especially telling. He's pitching in the AL Central, so he's not going to be facing offensive juggernauts like Tex, NYY and StL.
Just be careful who you start him against, and you should come out on top. When he's on, he's ON. He's the kind of pitcher who's capable of throwing a perfect game at any time. Just don't start him against teams that can mash. He's still a young pitcher, he's not an ace yet...so use him accordingly.
That being said, there are certainly going to be some rough patches for this kid, but I think we're going to be looking at a season ERA under 3.50 with about 130 Ks. That's nothing to laugh at, especially with someone who can be picked up off waivers.
If you're looking for wins, however, that's a completely different story. That miserable KC squad is going to struggle to get Greinke more than 5 wins this year. Of course, in H2H leagues, that doesn't really matter as much as it does in Roto. Greinke should be owned in every H2H league, and most Roto leagues. He's certainly a better option than guys like Kip Wells and others who are currently being touted on these boards as "the next big thing."
