Just picked him up in my A.L.; obviously hoping the wins luck evens out.

After yesterday, Zack's still neck and neck with Felix in WUQS, but he's taken a commanding lead in Tough Losses, chalking up No. 5 while Hernandez got a no decision. The way we keep score, the difference between 2-4 and 1-6 is negligible. In real life as experienced by baseball players, it's huge.

Last night was a clinker; I just checked to see what Zack's next worst game was, and it was back on Aprl 10, his second start of the year. Four earned runs in 6.2 IP: 8 H, 0 BB, 5 SO. In only one other of his 10 starts, before last night, had he given up as many as 4 runs: May 7, when one of the runs he allowed in 7 IP was unearned.

May 7 doesn't qualify as a Quality Start, because to earn one of those you have to pitch at least 6 innings and allow no more than 3 runs, earned or otherwise. By my own way of looking at things -- and I don't even own Greinke -- Zack's had 8 Quality Starts this year in 10 tries. Officially, though, he's only had 7.

With one W to show for it.

Surely he's the leader in another category that I am hereby announcing: WUQS.

Wins Under Quality Starts.

I wonder if he laps the field in WUQS? Is there anyone else in baseball this year with just one win (or none) who has had even three Quality Starts? I very much doubt it.

Believe me, I don't own him. I just feel very badly for Rotoman, who never complains about anything.

The definition of not having it when you're Zack Greinke: 42 of 65 pitches are strikes; 2 of the 42 are swung at and missed.

0 wins in 7 starts for the reigning CY Young winner. When I bid $37, I knew wins would be hard to come by, but this is ridiculous. No way he sniffs these earnings this year. He will be lucky to win 10 on this team. Painful.

If you're the kind of person inclined to peruse Fangraphs and Hardball Times, you might find it interesting Greinke has a 4.23 xFIP--so you can't say he's been COMPLETELY unlucky.

Blame the Royals all you want, but Greinke wouldn't be 0-3 if he knew how to win!

If Hillman would just leave him in for one more inning, he'd have three decisions in his favor.

119 pitches over 7 innings. Another no decision.
