Greinke is the definition of composure out there.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

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

Kind of. I'm a psychologist, but I don't really work with anxiety disorders.

Kind of. I'm a psychologist, but I don't really work with anxiety disorders.

I teach in a program specifically geared for students with various social and stress related anxiety disorders. I don't know much about what Zach was particularly diagnosed with, but I do know that there is never going to be any certainty that he doesn't hit another low due to some sort of social or stress related anxiety again. However, as long as he continues to get whatever support and service he's gotten over the past few years, he's got as good a chance as anyone to keep things going on the up and up mentally.

As long as he keeps his ERA at zero, he should stay pretty balanced. Once he allows that first earned run, WATCH OUT!

LOL :-D

I am so glad I was able to draft Greinke in the 11th round of my 12 team 6 player Yahoo roto! ;-D
I have a feeling I will be keeping this stud for quite awhile. :-)

....just sayin, but....if Greinke doesn't give an earned run up tomorrow in his next start he'll be the ONLY person to EVER start 7 games in a row without giving up an earned run....

My prediction...a Travis Snider HR to break up the streak.
