I owned Felix too and loved watching him develop but in my head the award belonged to Greinke.

I would have put Halladay 2nd or 3rd but that's nitpicking. I was hoping for Felix but he was a long shot over Greinke.

So far, the writers in the A.L. have been great.

Won the CYA as deserved with a nearly perfect vote order: Greinke, Felix, Verlander, CC, Halladay. I'd just swap the final two if I had to rank the top 5.

Great season and there's nothing to complain about the writers' vote at all.

That's funny, I picked up Kinsler for Jeter from Slyke to get the SB. I lost about 4-5 in that one.

I was winning in the ADL the first half of the year, but Walter Shapiro made a couple of totally winning trades (one, with me, on May 16, in which he took Gavin Floyd and I took back Juan Cruz and Daric Barton) and put together one of the most dominant ADL wins ever (85.5 to 67.5 pending today's contest).

He will be explaining how in this year's Guide.

The Floyd trade didn't hurt me much (I finished 2nd in wins, 3rd in ERA, 4th in Ratio), but I was done in by Josh Hamilton's bum season, what looked like an excellent deadline deal (Jeter for Kinsler at the ASB) going sour, and Walter's excellent run.

Wait until next year!

Are you winning/will you win in ADL, Peter?

I see I have no comment on Greinke here.

In tango's projection race I ended up with Greinke in 990 of 1000 imaginary drafts.

I also ended up with Greinke in the ADL, for 24, about $6 more than my bid price.

By my actions, I own Greinke's amazing season. And yet as a prognosticator I'm kind of invisible on the Greinke issue.

How can that be?

I think two things come into play. I saw Greinke improving by a little on 2008. Most did not see him improving at all.

In the ADL, we know prime pitchers will draw lots of attention. Everybody ends up with one of them. Nobody can afford to end up with more than two of them. Or none of them. This year I got lucky that mine was Greinke, just like the year before it was profoundly unlucky to end up with Verlander.

This is fun, but I'm starting to think we have to rethink the game.

Pitching to Mauer - not a good idea.
