So.... would anyone on here trade Greinke for Tyson Ross straight up?

I (still) think it's a good question.  :-)

@Nonexistant I'm not as high on Joc as some others.  I'm still trying to convince people around here that Tyson Ross for Zack Greinke isn't a crazy idea.  :)

@Dodger in Florida Kersh is the best pitcher in MLB, and Ross is a damn good pitcher - better than a lot of fans know.

@Tired Math Cat @baeksu Most of their stats are very similar  - many of them going back for two years.  The 27 year-old has been improving for the last two years while the 30 year-old has been great for a sustained amount of time.

@Tired Math Cat @baeksu @P_F_P @TellMyWifeISaidHello I don't think that's such a difficult part of the comment.  I'm not sure the Padres would trade Ross for Greinke straight up.

@Tired Math Cat @baeksu Fair enough.  But is that as misleading as picking out one ratio when trying to compare two players overall?


His K/BB% is not as good at Greinke but has been improving for two years.  ERA and WHIP are identical.  One is on an upward trajectory and one is an incredible pitcher who is at the top of his game and will probably start declining in a few years.

@P_F_P @baeksu @TellMyWifeISaidHello @Tired Math Cat


This is not his first year of sustained success.  He was very good last year as well at age 26. 


At any rate, Greinke's success is not going to continue indefinitely.  No doubt Greinke has been better and is better now.  I'm thinking about upside and downside over the next few years.

@Tired Math Cat @baeksu This past year he's been improving, though.  I'd do it more for projected upside, but I can see your point as well.

@Uncultured Bastard @baeksu Kind of thought I'd get that reaction. But, honestly, I'd take the trade.  He's been as good a pitcher as Greinke for a year now, and is getting better.

@KMT59 @WBBsAs (In Dog We Trust. Un Planeta Sin Gatos) Padres are playing pretty well over the last month.  Their ace has really gotten his stuff figured out and they're playing like they've got nothing to lose.  Plus they got a couple of guys back from injury.
