Greinke Vs. Gibson: Why Zack’s Understated, Yet Historically Stingy Summer Would Make Bob Proud

Tuesday night, Zack Greinke turned in a spectacularly great outing, both in timing and effect. His 7.1 innings of five hit, one run baseball carried his Los Angeles Dodgers over their hated divisional rivals in the San Francisco Giants to stretch the distance in their divisional lead to a more comfortable 5.5 games. Greinke’s performance also pulled them to within a game of a...

Pederson, Peraza Overshadow Pitchers’ Duel Between Greinke, Bumgarner

In a game that saw Cy Young favorite Zack Greinke face off against reigning World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner on the mound and at the plate, the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Francisco Giants got the pitchers’ duel they expected. But they also saw a couple of young Dodgers do their best to steal the show. Jose Peraza, whom the Dodgers acquired from the Atlanta Braves in the...

What’s the most impressive thing about Zack Greinke?

Much has been made about the offensive performance of Madison Bumgarner this season. Clearly, he is one pitcher not swinging a wet newspaper. With his five home runs, Bumgarner will claim his second Silver Slugger award (how many of you knew they gave those out to pitchers?) and continue fueling the debate surrounding whether or not pitchers should be allowed to bat. While Bumgarner’s...

Houston Astros Quietly Grinding It Out

The first place and very talented Los Angeles Dodgers arrived at the Juice Box with the skilled arms of Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw prepared to punish my boys in orange. Me, I gotta say I was concerned. My mighty mighty Stros had just split a series with the lowly Rays and honestly didn’t even look half mighty doing it. Greinke and Kershaw are among the elite dealers in the...

Should batting receive consideration in Cy Young voting?

10 days ago, I was informed that I will be voting for the National League Cy Young Award this year. This will be my first time voting on the pitcher awards — last year, I was tasked with voting for Manager of the Year and MVP — and so I’ve spent the last week and a half trying to work through what kind of factors I’m going to want to consider in putting my ballot together...

Clayton Kershaw chases Zack Greinke, nerd history

Chasing records is fun. Sometimes it’s meaningless and fun, like the famed Ryan Webb, Matt Albers games-finished-without-a-save streak. Some chases have limited meaning, but they’re fun, like Zack Greinke‘s pursuit of Orel Hershiser‘s consecutive scoreless innings streak. Other are meaningful, like the 2015 Cardinals pursuit of the best park-adjusted ERA since before...

Dodgers 2, Reds 1: Zack Greinke Batflipped and Other Baseball Happened Too I Guess

Guys. GUYS. LOOK AT THIS BATFLIP. …right. Recap. After I watch the batflip about 10 dozen more times. The Dodgers closed out a series win against the Reds with a 2-1 victory. The entirety of the Dodger offense was supplied by back-to-back home runs in the fifth inning. The Dodgers couldn’t do much against Anthony DeSclafani until the fifth inning. However, Joc Pederson hit...

The Good, the Bad and the Greinke

On June 23, 1971 – that’s two months after A Fistful of Death had its release date, for those of you who crave historical context – Phillies pitcher Rick Wise enjoyed the kind of performance that might best be described as “The Good, the Great and the Wise,” if only because it perfectly fits this narrative. On that day in Cincinnati, the 25-year-old righty not only no-hit...
