One of the most underrated stories this baseball season is the dominance of Kansas City Royals pitcher Zack Greinke. Sure, it was the subject of a great JoePo SPORTS ILLUSTRATED cover piece so it’s not exactly a story that’s been ignored. That said, you have to admit that if Greinke-Dink was pitching in a major media market, this kid would be one of ESPN’s daily top stories. Between his pitching dominance and his unique behavior and backstory, his is a story that has media darling written all over it. But even here at SbB, a site whose patriarch who used to work Royals broadcasts, Greinke hasn’t been a huge story.
That’s gotta change. Greinke deserves to be a superstar, and we’re not even talking about baseball. If his arm ever goes out, the kid’s got a great future in stand-up comedy. The blog SHAN.BIZ has compiled a list of the greatest Greinke quotes so far (he’s only 25!) and lemme tell ya, folks, Yogi Berra’s got nothing on Zack Greinke.
