The Case Against Greinke?

This is going to be a short slide.

His FIP is .2.61 and his BABIP is .237. Some people could read into that and thing he’s been riding luck?

He also only has one complete game this season, which I don’t believe even counts because the Dodgers lost on the road so he only had to go eight innings. He clearly doesn’t know how to win games. While DeGrom doesn’t have a CG this year, Kershaw and Arrieta each have three. It should be a moot point, but I tend to not trust voters. Also voters could be dumb and Kershaw and Greinke can split the Dodger vote, opening it up for Arrieta.

Next: Kershaw Is Also Good
