Absolutely. He's leading the AL in ERA and he's averaging 6 or 7 k's a game. Plus Oakland hasn't fared well against LHP. He's a keeper if you can get him.
Also, think about picking up Derek Holland. Got his first start last night, 6IP, 7K, 0 ER and picked up the win. He's here to stay after tearing up AAA and with Harrison and Feldman struggling.

Trading Greinke and Zito for a hitter should allow you to get almost any elite player in the league. That's a lot of trade value, unless that team already has good pitchers.
I also own Greinke, and if I was going to trade him I'd expect a player like a Vernon Wells, Jason Bay or Ichiro. A good but not elite player. Greinke is 0-4, but look at his ERA and WHIP. He will get his going forward.
If you trade BOTH pitchers, I wouldn't settle for anything less than your choice of player, barring somebody like Pujols or Cabrera, etc. But you should be able to get an A-Rod, Braun, H Ramirez, or anyone you like. Quentin is so inconsistent right now you won't get much for him. I dropped him last week.
You might try Kelly Johnson and Greinke or Zito for Cano, Pedroia or Utley. That way they get a good 2B in return and you get an elite one. Utley would be my choice of the 3, although I'd rather give up Zito/Johnson than Greinke/Johnson.
It all depends on your league and how willing the managers are to deal and trade

I assume you are talking about Ian Kennedy and not Adam Kennedy. I would take Kennedy just because Millwood plays for such an awful team. That hurts his run support. I think it will be close either way, though. I don't see one guy dominating the rest of the way over another. They're both number 4 or 5 starters on your team.
