On Monday night, Diamondbacks starter Zack Greinke tossed a gem against the White Sox. In 8.2 innings, he struck out 12 while giving up just one run. In the second year of a 6-year, $206 million contract, Greinke has been great—especially when you compare his start to 2016's.
Greinke's First 10 Starts
In the top of the 9th against the White Sox, Greinke broke out what many people are calling an "eephus." Here's the pitch.
That's a 65-mph curveball. A great pitch, yes, But an eephus? Nah. An eephus is slower and goes higher.
This is an eephus.
And this is an eephus.
Get to work, Zack.
Baseball is here! And more importantly, that means the over/under game is back. It seems as though everyone is an expert this time of year. Somehow we convince ourselves that we are better at predicting baseball outcomes than everyone else. Well, AFITB is putting that to the test for the third year in a row. Think you know more about baseball than us? You probably do. But go ahead and prove it anyway.
Baseball is simply the best.
Can the playoffs get even better? Yes, if you play this game with us.
