Cueto had a career best last year (by far) of 4.9.
BTW, in the last 5 years Greinke ranks 5th in baseball in WAR for pitchers.
That spells more than an "average" pitcher anyway you cut it.
Yep. For anyone out there who puts Greinke in the #3 category, my homework assignment is to give me a list of all the #1 and #2 pitchers you feel are in MLB right now.
