Tonight Zack Greinke will take the ball in the biggest moment of his life: Game 7 of the World Series. He'll be opposite a complete sociopath in Max Scherzer. It should make for incredible television watching these two go at it with literally everything on the line. I figured this would be a good time to bring up Greinke's incredible thoughts on Chipotle. Yes, that Chipotle. The one that gave me food poisoning on Monday that I'm still recovering from.
Greinke, despite making $32 million a year, still has his principles. I don't like Zack Greinke particularly, but I for sure can respect a man who has his principles and doesn't change no matter what.
Dude is in the middle of a contract that will pay him $206 million when it's over with. He pretty much makes a million dollars a start. Still, a 30 cent hike for guacamole was too much for him. He couldn't find it in him to let Chipotle win. I love that. That's common man mentality through and through.
His wife knowing that she'll never be number 1 over baseball is also fantastic.
Didn't think I'd ever appreciate Zack Greinke, but after writing this blog he's gained some points in my book. So how will he fair tonight? Well, I don't think he could have summed up the moment any better.
