The San Francisco Giants lost their season opener to the Arizona Diamondbacks after going through a humiliating and on-brand bullpen collapse in the ninth inning. Whatever. Nobody cares how the game ended, because Madison Bumgarner was on the field.
Zack Greinke left the Dodgers for the huge pile of cash that the Arizona Diamondbacks offered him this offseason, and he tried to show out a bit when he hit what he probably believed to be a donger against his former team. He flipped a itty bitty bat flip to commemorate the occasion. Except, yeah, no, that’s not a…
Zack Greinke’s attempt to break Orel Hershiser’s scoreless innings streak was ended today by, of all people, his opposing pitcher Jacob deGrom, as the Mets hurler drove in Kirk Nieuwenhuis with a third-inning fielder’s choice. The streak reached 45 2/3 innings.
Dodgers starter Zack Greinke is on a hell of a roll right now, having not allowed an earned run in his last 43 and two-thirds innings. He extended his streak of scoreless innings—the most since Orel Hersheiser pitched 59 straight shutout frames in 1988—with a dominant outing against the Nationals yesterday. But…
Thanks to Sons of Steve Garvey, we now know the shocking truth: the kid from Boyhood has been pitching in the majors this whole time.
The Dodgers have been on an absolute tear for more than two months. And Clayton Kershaw, who possesses an impossible 1.72 ERA as the calendar nears September, looks all but certain to win the National League Cy Young Award for the second time in three years. But we really need to talk about Zack Greinke and how well…
Carlos Quentin was handed an eight-game suspension after he charged the much, much tinier Zack Greinke last Thursday, sparking a bench-clearing brawl.
Sure, he looks like he should be at the center of an involved murder mystery on General Hospital, but Dr. Neal ElAttrache spent a good chunk of his Saturday operating on both Zack Greinke's collarbone and Kobe Bryant's achilles. Both surgeries were completed without incident, if you couldn't tell just by looking at…
Benches cleared in San Diego tonight after a Zack Greinke pitch hit Carlos Quentin on the arm, leading the Padres outfielder to charge the mound and spark a lengthy delay that resulted in several ejections and an irate Matt Kemp.
MLB just announced the deal, and Ken Rosenthal and Jon Morosi are saying the Angels are sending shortstop Jean Segura and two minor leaguers to Milwaukee. Safe to say the Brewers have given up on 2012, and the AL West race is going to be completely insane.
From the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Tom Haudricourt: "Zack Greinke will be first pitcher to start 3 consecutive games in same MLB season since White Sox's Red Faber in 1917 (Elias)." Greinke was tossed from a Saturday start after four pitches. So he came back on Sunday and started—poorly (three runs in three…

Seems as if a Philadelphia blogger started a Hot Stove frenzy last night by Tweeting that the Phillies and Royals worked out a deal for Zack Greinke while cyber-costumed as Sports Illustrated's Jon Heyman.

Betting on a mid-June AL Central baseball game seems like a brilliant path to financial freedom, but believe it or not, there are dangers. Like a flock of birds attacking Coco Crisp and costing you a $38,000 payday.
