Most pitchers have the luxury of winning Cy Youngs closer together, but Zack Greinke is not like most pitchers. Greinke began his BDB career in Bristol back in 2004 and when traded to North Bay in 2009, not only winning his first BDB Championship, but his first Cy Young award as well. That season he did so with a 17-6 record, with a 3.06 ERA. He also threw five shutouts and struck out 238 batters in 242 innings. Not bad for a pitcher who considered giving up his pitching career in 2005 for a golf career.
Fast forward to 2020, with another BDB Championship series ring on his finger, Greinke adds another trophy to his collection. This season Greinke went 20-6 with a 3.36 ERA with 33 starts, two shutouts n 230 innings with 197 k’s. When Greinke was asked how he felt about this award, he said the exact same thing he did ten years ago when asked the same question, Geinke simply responded “Good”.
