Greinke is NO Cliff Lee!!!!

Postby Bosy Billups » Mon May 04, 2009 10:31 pm

"Zack is this year's Cliff Lee."

The only thing they have in common is a fast start to the season. However, as far as raw talent, potential, upside... Greinke was always believed to have Cy Young stuff even in his teens. I hate the comparison by fantasy experts and Baseball Tonight.

Zack Greinke is the real deal. He could be a top 3 pitcher in next year's draft, if not the top pitcher.

He went in the 6th or 7th round in most of my leagues which was too rich for my blood, though apparently they knew what they were talking about!

No Cafe guys in that league I would presume. He was highly touted by most around here.

He is no stud either. I'd take Gallardo over Lee every time and you don't see that kind of thing that much from someone who just won a Cy Young.

Lee had a career year. But you still are left thinking it was more a fluke than anything.

With Greinke, and his nasty 4 pitches, as well as his age, pedigree, movement.... it's a completely different level. The level that Santana, Halladay, and Lincecum is at. Welcome to the big boys club Zack.

Maybe Liriano will join it next :)

I drafted him thanks to Cafe's tier ranking. ;-D ;-D ;-D
many 3-rd tier guys were selected before him.
