In his last 19 major-league starts, Zack Greinke has gone 7-4 with a 2.56 ERA. Not bad, but as long as he's with the Royals that projects to probably just 12-13 wins a year, tops.

The question for Darwin: should Greinke start, or be dropped into long relief, a role in which he excelled for much of last season, in order to get aging veterans Tom Glavine and Tim Wakefield starting opportunities?

And, if John Smoltz returns from the DL again, what role should he have with the club?

Right now, the only sure things in the rotation of the Unnatural Selections are Oliver Perez and Scott Kazmir.
