Greinke wins ERA title, 19th game as Dodgers clinch home field in NLDS

LOS ANGELES — Zack Greinke earned the NL ERA title and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the San Diego Padres 2-1 Saturday night to clinch home-field advantage in their upcoming playoff series against the New York Mets.

Dodgers 2, Padres 1: Dodgers clinch HFA for NLDS, Greinke clinches Cy?

Behind potential Cy Young award winner Zack Greinke and just enough offense, the Dodgers clinched home-field advantage with a 2-1 win against the Padres on Saturday night. Thanks to the Nationals sweeping a doubleheader earlier in the day, the Dodgers’ 91 wins are enough to have the National League Division Series begin in Los Angeles on Friday (afternoon? evening?). Greinke was...

Zack Greinke on pitching inside

After we finished talking about his changeup and what he learned from Felix Hernandez, after we finished talking about command for the Hardball Times Annual, after we talked a little about his slider and his sinker, after we talked about a few hitters, even after I’d said goodbye and shook his hand, Zack Greinke hovered. He wasn’t done. He had noticed something about pitching...

What Zack Greinke Learned from Felix Hernandez Exactly

Zack Greinke‘s changeup may only seem different this year. By the stats, it drops a bit more and it’s harder, sure. But if you ask the pitcher, the pitch itself hasn’t changed much. “I throw it more this year,” he said when I asked him what was different about it. If the systems have the change dropping more this year — estimates run from about a half inch to an inch...

Looking for more Cy Young separators

As I wrote yesterday, I have an NL Cy Young vote this year. It is a remarkably tough year to pick a winner, as there are three pitchers having award-worthy seasons; you can make a really good argument for any of the three. The reality is that those of us with votes are going to have to split the slimmest of hairs in order to sort out the top three spots on the ballot, and yesterday...

Greinke scratched from start, should the Dodgers be worried?

On the eve of the Los Angeles Dodgers second game at home against the Arizona Diamondbacks in a time in which the Dodgers seek to cut down on their magic number to clinch the NL West and on a four game losing streak, ace pitcher Zack Greinke has been scratched as a result of a sore calf. Greinke who had been scheduled to start against Chase Anderson was the Dodger’s biggest source...

What can be made of Zack Greinke?

David Price, Scott Kazmir, Johnny Cueto, and Jordan Zimmermann will all be free agents after this season. So too, could Zack Greinke. Signed to a six-year deal worth $147 million by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2012, the contract included an opt-out clause after three seasons. As coincidence would have it, here we sit, with the Dodgers leading the NL West and Greinke seen as one of...

Zack Greinke bemoans long length of games in September

    Zack Greinke pitched six innings and picked up a win for the Dodgers against the Angels on Monday night. The final score was 7-5, but you would have thought it was 24-23 with the amount of players who took the mound. A total of 16 pitchers received work in the game. Six pitchers recorded just one out each, and the game took more than four hours to complete. Greinke felt...
