But these weren't bad pitchers in bad situations. Rest wise or home wise. I count it at freakish, but obviously good reason for everyone to freak out.

Tamed the once-mighty 'Stros into the seventh.

D'backs stay tied with the Rockies for the first wild card. The loser almost certainly gets the second.

The West rocks.

He's the NL Doubt Wars MVP so far ... no doubt about it.  I did not want him "at par" ... but the Touts only paid 12, so I could not resist.

. tells that club will install a humidor at Chase Field with hopes it can help improve grips for pitchers.

It was a tale of three seasons, or parts of seasons, for Greinke last year. It started on a down note, with two dismal starts at home to open the season. He struggled to a 5.26 ERA on May 12th, then went on a month and a half run that ended on June 28th, with a short stint. Over that time he went 7-0, with a 2.26 ERA and .89 WHIP, but the oblique injury that cut short that late-June game lingered, and he did not pitch again until August. After he returned he again struggled and didn't regain that late-spring form before his season ended with shoulder stiffness in mid-September. The troubling thing about Greinke's performance last summer was that even when he was at his best he was striking out fewer batters with slightly diminished velocity, which tailed off even more after his return from the DL. As was expected, Greinke was somewhat better on the road than at home in Arizona, but that wasn't enough to explain away his problems. Coming off one of the great seasons of all time in 2015, Greinke was bound to return to earth, but it is an open question whether he can regain his former high level of year to year performance.

The velocity of Greinke's four-seam fastball was almost a full mph below average.

The spin rate was more than 100 rpm above average.

The exit velocity (when batters connected against the four-seamer) was more than an mph slower than the average exit velocity (of all batters against all four-seamers).

That, I think, is what the Statcast averages tell us.

The splits show Greinke getting hit hard in August and September after missing all of July.
