Please explain how you came to this conclusion.


LOL, I'm still waiting on explanations on why Edwin Jackson would have been a terrible signing, how a 3.9 WAR is horrible, and many other things. Good luck with getting an answer.

Who knows maybe a move from the AL East to the NL would do Matusz some good. As long as Bundy, Machado, Schoop, Avery, and Hoes stay put then I'm OK with going after Greinke.

I get not trading Bundy&Machado, but I don't think we can deem all those players especially Avery&Hoes untradeable.

Ya know, your juvenile condescending attitude towards anyone that disagrees with you gets a little old. I have read some of the comments you have made belittling other members opinions and I wonder if your tired act isn’t some form of over compensation for some sort of masculine shortcoming you were born with.

Against AL EAST:

Boston: 2.88 ERA, 34.1 Innings Pitched
NY: 6.45 ERA, 44.2 Innings Pitched.
Jays: 4.45 ERA, 58.2 Innings Pitched.
Rays: 3.32 ERA, 62.1 Innings Pitched

Averages out to a 4.28 ERA against the AL East. Of course, a pitcher does not only face against just the AL East.

Greinke had some terrific years for KC and he has been well worth a 100M contract with his work in MIL. If you base off FIP and xFIP, Greinke has been one of the better pitchers in the league the past 2 years. Even if you go back to his FIP and xFIP from his American League days, they were still low 3's. I see no reason why Greinke wouldn't be a good acquisition (barring an extension). Let's be honest, the Orioles have the money to spend, they also have a lot coming off the books next year with Gregg, Reynolds, etc.

I know someone is going to say something about his ERA against the Yankees, but EVERYONE sucks against them. They are the Yankees for a reason.
