Zack Greinke Will Be Fine | Disciples of Uecker

Disciples of Uecker

We'd like to go to the Playoffs, that would be cool.

I didn’t get a chance to watch tonight’s game, nor do I have a ton of time to go analyze it in depth right now, but I can tell you just from a cursory glance at the FanGraphs box score (which, seriously, so much better than normal box scores) that Greinke will be just fine. Why? These three things.

- Six strikeouts in four innings.

- Just one walk.

- Seven ground balls against just two fly balls and one line drive.

It sounded like, from my personal reports, that Greinke was suffering from the same luck on balls getting through fielders that plagued Gallardo and Estrada in the two previous games. And honestly, with this serving almost as a spring training game for Greinke, I don’t think we should be too disappointed. He’ll be fine.

    I listened to the first inning on the radio, and it went something like this:

    -Prado grounds out.

    -Gonzalez reaches on an error by Prince Fielder.

    -Heyward reaches on catcher’s interference (on what may have otherwise been a third strike, IIRC)

    -Uggla gets an RBI “single” on a ground ball hit into the hole at short, described by the Braves announcers as a perfectly placed “7-hopper”

    -Greinke retires the next two batters.

    Right there, by my count Zack got 6 outs, basically pitched two innings in the first, but only got credit for 1 and gave up an unearned run ’cause of the luck dragons. Obviously that’s not the only run he gave up, but still, it sounds like that’s how his night went.

    So do we think the Brewers can get JJ Hardy at the deadline? That defense could come in handy.
