    Add Wainwright to the list, awful first couple starts. Greinke is the most shocking to me out of them all, considering what he did last season and the few years previous. Idk what's wrong with them but let's check back in June and re-evaluate the situation, could just be slow starts, cold weather etc.

    Well, if you were rich - nice and warm all winter long - nookie all the time - no nut binding pressure every 4 days - no have to here, there, everywhere upon demand - it might be a hard transition???

    No disrespect - maybe you are rich and get nookie all the time!

    Bumgarner was roping cattle, cutting snakes in pieces, and saving the jack rabbit that was inside. So that can't be it.

    Lincecum or Zito disease...seems like some of these guys rip off some great years and than fall apart. It's a bit early to say anyone is falling apart, but much like closers, they seem to have a limited shelf life nowadays.

    archer isn't an ace
    Harvey primadonnna not even top 2 in his own rotation
    kluber will turn it around
    verlander Father Time
    degrom will be lights out when gets healthy and mentally right with new born
    bum will be fine

    Agree about Grienke
    Archer has some nasty stuff and was dominant last year....wait and see
    Harvey still very good but would take DeGrom for sure over him....And def a primadonna
    Agree about Kluber
    Verlander declining but still solid
    Agree Degrom will be great
    Agree Bum

    Scherzer getting rocked today
