Zack Greinke and the 11 Greatest Seasons Since Pedro's 1999

Zack looked like he was going to "make history" back in May. You know, the history books that cite pitcher WAR. So, I checked it out using my usual tricks that are actually borrowed from other people: Colin Wyers' BsR-FIP (why isn't this used more?), PythagenPat, etc. to see how he stacked up, and in the meantime, I rank a number of other great seasons. And, yes, this includes some stuff from before the "FanGraphs Era" (2002-).
