Everybody needs pitching!

The Milwaukee Brewers trade a barrel o'prospects to the Kansas City Royals for Zack Greinke. That gives them an ace to complement Yovani Gallardo. With the recently-acquired Shawn Marcum, they've done their best to address the team's terrible 2010 pitching (804 RA).

The Giants won the World Series with great pitching. The Phillies certainly noticed, bringing back prodigal son Cliff Lee to strengthen an already formidable staff. The Brewers are catching on, too. Let's hope all the Giants hurlers stay healthy for the 2011 season so they can continue to show the rest of the league how it's done.

I find it interesting that the Yankees, having failed at getting Cliff Lee, also were unable to get one of the remaining good pitchers available. The Yanks chase free agents because they do not have the farm system (or, if they do, are not willing to spend it) to make a trade. Live by the free agent, die by the free agent.
