Greinke went 16-8 with a 2.16 ERA in 2009 and would draw considerable interest on the open market, being the best available pitcher besides free agent Cliff Lee.

Greinke would be an unstoppable pitcher if he was given a little run support. A move to the NL would put him right to the top of the league with a caliber pitchers of pitchers that include Roy Halladay, Tim Lincecum, and several other pitchers on the rise.
