Zack Greinke had a terrible start to the 2016 season. The pitcher who will for ever now be referred to as the 206.5 Million dollar man (I’d be okay with people bringing up my salary every-time they mentioned my name if I was making 200 million.) apparently pitched with the flu.
Greinke gave up 7 runs on 9 hits in 4 innings against the Rockies. Last season, Zack did not give up 6 runs in a single game, let alone 6 in a single inning. (He gave up more than 3 only twice.) Zack also never went less than 6 innings last season. If Greinke rebounds in his next start, all will be forgotten. If not, this could hang over his head for a while. I’m pretty sure our resident nurse @indaburg will agree when I say, if you are feeling sick, do the world a favor and just stay in bed. Trying to tough it out rarely does anyone any good. There appears to be no rest for the weary however, as Greinke’s next scheduled start is against the Cubs.
