Zack Greinke: Cy Young winner, Best Interview in Sports
Joe Posnanski with this Greinke-bit in his coronation column in the K.C. Star this morning:
The Cy Young Award press tour was not something he wanted to do. He didn’t even answer the Cy Young call because he did not recognize the number on his cell phone.
That comes just hours after Sam Mellinger (also of the Star) relays this bit to us via Twitter:
Zack on whether he’s thought about Cy Young since season ended: “Not really. I’ve been playing this World of Warcraft game.”
The primary question of this blog–if there was one–for about two months was, “seriously, how could you not love Zack Greinke?” Well, the BBWAA spoke, and color me impressed and pleasantly surprised. They do love Zack Greinke.
And by record margins as well. 25/28 first place votes for a guy who won only 16 games? I’d have to think that even if CC Sabathia had won 20 games, Greinke would still have had enough pull to win.
The only question that Zack has to answer next season would be: is the best yet to come?

Hey, you never know. I’m not going to bet on it, but I’m even less inclined to bet against it.
