The Most Loved Man in Kansas City (Pause)

Posted in sports by arcanedufresne on September 30, 2009

As the Royals face the Yankees midweek in a three game series, Zack Greinke had the pleasure of sitting down and answering a few questions from some of New York’s finest media members. One question and its subsequent answer in particular made me giddy like a schoolyard hooligan.

“You’ve had great success this year, but you look across (that diamond) at this team, and they’re getting ready to go to the playoffs. Do you ever think, ‘I’d take less personal success to be able to pitch in the playoffs?’ ”

Greinke’s response was immediate.

“Yeah, definitely,” he said. “But I don’t want to pitch for New York in the playoffs. I want to pitch for Kansas City in the playoffs. It would definitely be a lot better being in the playoffs than not. That’s all you ever play for.”
