Baseball Almanac Top Quote

"Five years later, so much has changed. Zack Greinke has been a phenom, and he has been a bust. He has walked away from baseball, and he has come back. He has been a starter and a reliever, a genius and a flake, and even now he's still only 25 years old. And, for the moment, Greinke is the best pitcher in baseball." - Joe Posnanski In Sports Illustrated (05/04/2009, 'Zack Greinke is in Total Control')

baseball almanac fast facts

In 2009 , Zack Greinke finished the season with a Major League low 2.16 ERA [ ERA Champions ], winning The Sporting News Pitcher of the Year Award , the Players Choice Outstanding Pitcher of the Year Award , and the Cy Young Award - the third Kansas City Royals twirler to win a Cy Young (joining Bret Saberhagen and David Cone ), and the only recipient with a 200-strikeout campaign during their Cy Young season!

Did you know that when Zack Greinke mowed down 201 batters two years after (in 2011 ) winning his Cy Young , he was only the third right-handed Milwaukee Brewers pitcher in franchise history to record a 200-strikeout season, matching the plateau reached previously by Ben Sheets (264 strikeouts in 2004) and Yovani Gallardo (204 strikeouts in 2009 & 200 strikeouts in 2010)?

Did you know that during the previous ten year period (2005-2015), Zack Greinke had five 200-strikeout seasons, tied for second most during that decade with Justin Verlander ? Do you know who the only pitcher is that had more 200-strikeout seasons during that timeframe (6x)? [ Answer ]

Zack Greinke had six consecutive scoreless starts in 2015, tying a National League record set previously by Orel Hershiser and Don Drysdale . During that streak, Greinke had 45.2 consecutive scoreless innings , the sixth longest streak in baseball history! [ Innings Pitched Records ]
