Get your Greinke on

Sir Zack Greinke (assuming he's been knighted, who hasn't these days) took home the well deserved Cy Young yesterday. 33 total starts and in 18 of those he held opponents to 1 run or less. That's disturbing, so are all his other stats this year.

As we've told you before, Greinke is kind of a quote machine, and we can only hope this hardware helps add to his arsenal of funny little quips. Here's a link to a few goodies and a couple others to hold you over for a bit. If you have some, throw them in the comments section.

"They just said rebuilding because the team was bad."

“There’s a lot more interesting stuff going on right now They should have something else on the cover. Playoff basketball or something else. So it’s a mistake. They’ll probably sell their least amount of magazines in a long time - except when NASCAR was on the cover.”

"Nice effort by the defense. They didn't get tired of running after balls to the wall. I was pretty impressed by that."

"I don't want to pitch for New York in the playoffs -- I want to pitch for Kansas City in the playoffs,"

And maybe the best yet:

Zack talking about Carl Crawford pinch hitting for him in the All-Star game: “I was like, ‘Crawford? Are you serious?’ ” Greinke says. “But he got a base hit, so it’s acceptable. And he robbed a homer, so I guess that worked out all right. It could’ve been me. That pitch was probably right down the middle. I would’ve crushed it.”

So how much will Theo offer him?? With comments, and without...

He signed a 4yr/$38 mil in January, so he's got another 2 years before they start to dangle him unless the right offer really comes around.

BBG said...

Do you think Bay is worth $15 mil a year? How high will the Sox go on that one?

Jon said...

Supposedly he turned down $15mil for 4 years, but that's just so he can play the FA market to its' potential. I doubt they go 4 years though. Maybe 3 and an option, but he can probably find guaranteed 50 mil somewhere, so who knows.
