2010's Zack Greinke is: Ricky Nolasco

Nolasco has a perfect 16/0 K/BB ratio in 12 innings of work this spring.

The Next ACE. Perfect Age. Elite stuff. Time to dominate.

Not sure Greinke is the best comparison - in 2009, Greinke had a spring training ERA over 9.21, then went on to win the Cy.

I love Nolasco and have targeted him in every draft but I think Scott Baker is this year Greinke and perhaps a better comparison as Nolasco and Greinke's careers/circumstances have fewer parallels.
