Zach Greinke Muses Thoughtfully on His Playoff Start
MLB is frequently accused of not marketing their star players adequately.
But the league is absolutely culpable.
Here's Zach charming the shit out of reporters before his scheduled Game 3 start against the Rays in Tampa:
Apparently, there was some sort of gas leak in the room that only affected Grienke.
The rest of the session was every bit as scintillating:
Zack Greinke being Zack Grienke. Hinch later said the reason the clubhouse culture is so great is because he lets them be who they are. You do you Zach, and bring us the W. https://t.co/RYYPDMQafK— 🎃💯🏆October Reign🏆💯🎃 (@AstrosReal) October 6, 2019
The dude is a powder keg.
Perhaps Greinke was too amped up, because his start at world famous Tropicana Field didn't go well at all.
He couldn't get out of the 4th inning, allowing six earned runs courtesy of three Rays long balls.
Houston fans didn't seem particularly surprised:
Zach Grienke in a big game 😂😂😂😂— Mike Cohen (@Sir_MikeyC) October 7, 2019
Zach Grienke sucked today. Plain and simple. He's always lacked that mental toughness you need to pitch in the postseason. (That bulldog mentality) Hopefully he puts together because the #Stros need him. #Astros— ✨🇨🇦FrancoFrank🇮🇹✨ (@frankiewiseguy) October 7, 2019
