Greinke admits he was bad guy in Royals saga - Yahoo! Sports

How much is the mentally unstable discount?

Nobody does honest like Zack Greinke. Because modern athletes have conditioned us to expect canned analysis, hollow words and cadaverous personalities, there is something so satisfying in somebody unburdened by what others might think. Greinke’s specific brand of truth is cold and unfiltered, nothing sacred, be it cows, people or even himself.

The fans were great. I don't know how so many of them come to the games when they've been bad for so long, but it's pretty impressive."


Hahaha, classic Greinke.

zack always looks a bit crazy when they pan to him in the dugout. it reminds me of that shot of cobb in bill james historical abstract where cobb's eyes give him a loony vibe

i like the kid and he can really pitch. but he is an odd duck no doubt about it
