Shaun Marcum and the Milwaukee Brewers trying to right the ship

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Shaun MarcumPicked to finish in the mid-80s in wins by many experts, the Milwaukee Brewers got off to a rough start, losing their first four in a row, including the season opener by way of a walk-off home run. They’re playing under-.500 so far and have already put themselves in a hole. While the season is still young, there are already a few disappointments making this difficult for the Brew Crew. First of all, Zack Greinke has yet to make an appearance (and likely won’t until May) and secondly, Shaun Marcum has been anything but Marcum-esque.

Zack Greinke to start on DL with injured rib

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Injuries, MLB,

Zack GreinkeDue to an extreme game of pick-up basketball, Zack Greinke has a hairline fracture in a rib on the left side of his body and will likely start the MLB season on the disabled list. Fans of the right-hander in Milwaukee will have to wait a few more weeks before they see their new ace in a Brewers uniform. It’s the latest mini-tragedy for a team who has had more than their fair share of them over the last 30 years.

Jeff Francis prospering in first week with Royals

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Jeff FrancisThe Kansas City Royals are entering a new era without Zack Greinke. In his stead, a group of virtual unknowns will take the reigns of the starting rotation. Among that group is a newcomer, Canadian-born left-hander Jeff Francis, who has spent his entire career that began in 2004 with the Colorado Rockies. He’s got a lot to prove in Spring Training this year, and according to the Royals, he’s prospering in his first week there.

Los Angeles Angels top list of Adrian Beltre suitors

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB, Rumors,

Adrian BeltreCurrent reports say that the Angels are on top of the bunch looking to acquire Adrian Beltre, but at this point, it might make more sense to just sit back as spectators and wait patiently for Beltre to decide where he wants to go. We’ve already seen a bunch of surprises this offseason. Nobody thought Cliff Lee would go to Philadelphia. Nobody thought Zack Greinke would go to Milwaukee. Nobody thought Jayson Werth was worth $126 million.

Cliff Lee signing helps shape AL East

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

CC SabathiaWhat does Cliff Lee signing with a National League team mean for the American League East? A lot, actually. The New York Yankees didn’t land this year’s greatest free agent, and that changes the whole landscape for the 2011 season. No longer are they the juggernaut that would win the East title year after year; now they spend twice as much money as anybody else to simply contend for wild cards, if they even get those.

Zack Greinke sitting tight while Cliff Lee is on market

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB, Rumors, Trades,

Zack GreinkeZack Greinke’s new uniform has been one of the biggest non-stories of the Winter Meetings. The Royals aren’t interested in playing their ace until Cliff Lee chooses a new home. There’s a lot of benefit in waiting for Lee to make up his mind, as most teams are interested in Lee before Greinke anyway. Once Lee’s off the market, Greinke becomes America’s most wanted and the Royals can barter for as much as they want. They’ll find a buyer willing to overpay somewhere.

Zack Greinke being shopped by Kansas City Royals?

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB, Rumors,

Zack GreinkeRoyals right-hander Zack Greinke still has two years left on a four-year deal he signed in 2009, but a lot of talk is coming out lately about Kansas City entertaining offers for the 27-year-old pitcher. Greinke, the 2009 American League Cy Young Award winner can fetch a great return. His 2010 totals – 4.17 ERA, 220 innings pitched, 181 strikeouts, 1.25 WHIP – were also rather impressive, considering the team playing behind him.

Greinke’s sorry start to the new year

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Zack GreinkeThe woes of Zack Greinke are nauseating. The 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner, who finished last season with a 16-8 record and a miniscule 2.16 ERA, is having more than his share of troubles finding his name in the win column of the morning papers. The Kansas City Royals have already fallen 8.5 games back in the AL Central with an 11-17 record, and not even their star right-hander has been able to limit the damage in support of his club.

What’s next for Greinke?

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Zack GreinkeHow much can you do when you’ve already done it all? Lots, if you’re Zack Greinke. As everybody saw, the starting pitcher lit up the opposition and won the 2009 AL Cy Young Award with the Kansas City Royals, putting everybody else on notice that he’s officially arrived and ready to throw. And at just 26 years old, there’s still plenty of throwing left in the right arm of the Royals’ ace.
