Zack Greinke

Reactions: 
Zack Greinke
Goose Joak Concept Card

Zack took a new approach this year. Fewer sliders, fewer curves, more change ups.  The result was a decrease in K rate and an increase in GB rate.  However, his BABIP did not go down at all.  I think a lot of this was due to his infield.  I love Aviles and Ka'aihue but they are not gold glovers out there.  Then you add Betemit, Butler, Getz, Yuni...again, nobody out there is a human vacuum.  

That said, if Zack is saving his arm for when it really matters (be it with a contending Royals team or another team entirely), then I really can't help but applaud his approach.

  1. I *really* like this design, but with the Captain, I wonder how it will look with the other team colors. Also, how it will look with action shots. Let's see some more, Master!

  2. Well...I did try a Pedro Alvarez and let's just say it needs a little work! Not quite ready for prime time ;)

    Thanks too for the kind words.
