Where Is My Hero?

Hero is the theme today, with Carson talking about his crush on AJ (see below.) So my blog tribute goes to my hero of the day, Zach Greinke. Why Zach Greinke? Because he may be the smartest player in baseball, and I appreciate brainage. The 23 year old right hander, who I once heard called "the next Greg Maddux" because of his moving fastball and cerebral approach to batters, decided to skip out on the Royals before the season started. No one really knows why other than "personal issues." Until now. It's obvious he didn't want to be on the worst team in the history of baseball. The Royals have 2 ten game losing streaks already (it's May!) They are on pace to lose greater than 120 games and finish 60 back of Detroit or Chicago or whoever wins the Central. Where's Greinke in all of this? Enjoying a pina colada or other adult beverage in his hometown of Orlando, FL maybe? I'm not really sure. Granted, he's not cashing a paycheck, but maybe this little coup will allow him to play for a different team next year, and then it will all be worth it. Hell, even Pittsburgh looks good compared to the Royals. So here's to you Zach Greinke, wherever the hell you are, for having enough "personal issues" to avoid the debacle that is the KC Royals.

The Royals suck! How can they suck so bad, I have no idea! Shittsburgh needs to stay ahead of the three-way pack for worst in baseball between K.C. and the Marlins.

the reason he didn't play is because he had some serious problems. not because he didn't want to play for us.
