He's even said he would rather be in the bullpen so that it gives him something to do on more days. He's always wanted to play everyday and has never really liked pitching. The guy just doesn't "care" enough to be good for any consistant, lengthy period. To be honest I think he will probably be twice the pitcher coming out of the pen than he is in the rotation......at least on a consistant basis.



I love you J35J, and I know your are our KC guy but you gotta admit...


Bahhh, sooo much has changed since '06-'07 that its almost like we aren't talking about the same guy. Not only the mental aspect but his "stuff" and how he is going about pitching has changed and is all much better.

3rd post down, 2nd page....this is a quick explanation I had before the season started.



You have been a major proponent of Zach this year, no question, I was just commenting on a post from a few years back where it looked as if we had come to the end of Greinke's career in baseball.

I'm still a bit scared of this possibility (losing his focus), but he looks great so far.


He literally has a medically zero percent chance of getting the anxiety order he had before again, medically it's just not possible.....

Good, but I wasn't saying that was going to happen again.

The anxiety order he was diagnosed with only affects a certain age group and only affects you once, I guess it's kinda like the Chicken pox, plus I think he's already passed the age group it affects but I'm not a 100% sure on that part.

1) What's an "anxiety order"?
2) Do you even know what you're talking about?

And it has a 20% relapse rate. Zack seems to have it under control though...
