If the reds add Chapman to the starting lineup, Would you consider it an even counter to the Brewer acquisition? Who would have the better rotation?

I'm pretty sure you can't count on Aroldis to provide a season's worth of starting pitching at this stage.

Why are we so worried about Greinke? He has way too many issues. Beside the Brewers gave up their entire starting middle just to get him. No defense behind him will eat him alive.

I just want Chapman starting, in Cincy or Louisville. While I'm worried about Greinke, its more because the Reds have to face him 3-4 times a season.

I think this board has been way too preoccupied with Greinke for too long...for nothing. But then again, it is winter and things get really slow...

He had issues and no defense in KC. Dude still put up some really good numbers.

We're worried about Greinke because he's a great pitcher. If I'm Milwaukee, I'd rather have Greinke pitching with a bad defense than Jeff Suppan pitching with a bad defense.

Greinke puts the Brewers, many feel, as the favorite to win the Central next year, I think we should worry a little.

Sorry, but you are sure you are aware of who Zach Greinke is? :D
