He is a very emotional pitcher. I have seen him lose his cool out on the mound a few times already this year. Hopefully he will settle down.

Haven't seen him pitch yet but if thats they case it sounds like we may have another Grienke. :-o The young team needs some veterans to help calm the youngsters down it sounds like. I'm hanging on to him for a little while longer. Maybe now the weather should be turning warmer every where it will help him get in a groove. Pine riding is what he'll be doing for me for the next couple starts though.

I don't understand how you could associate Olsen with Greinke at all, his issues are anxiety and depression, Olsen just sounds like he's one of those fierce competitors who tries to do too much at times. similar to Billingsley and Bonderman.

Grienke's issues seem to be more than anxiety and depression, I heard a radio interview and the guy sounded downright retarded, on another kind of level, even for an athlete.

I would assume that he was nervous and uncomfortable.

This is the type of stuff i've heard about Greinke:

Greinke loves the game and has great makeup. He spent time during spring training evaluating players with scouting director Deric Ladnier. He also took to watching opponents take batting practice, learning where hitters liked the ball. Greinke is a constant tinkerer and thinker with impeccable control of an array of plus pitches. He likes developing new pitches and variations of others by adding and subtracting velocity and changing grips.

Have to say no - Hirsh's home ballpark will come back and hurt him long-term. Olsen's park, however, is quite nice.

He reportedly was having mechanics issues. He's tinkering around, it'll probably be a few more starts till he fixes things up at least.

I had to drop either Greinke or Olsen, I chose Greinke. Lets see how that works out :-?
