Zack Greinke Really Doesn’t Want To Go To Australia, Probably

This is Zack Greinke this afternoon to Cliff Pennington:

See that hop there? That’s what is being termed a “right calf strain,” one that ended his day for “precautionary reasons” because later being termed “mild.” You’ll remember that Greinke dealt with right elbow soreness that blew up his spring training last season — before he was actually blown up by Carlos Quentin — so this is likely much ado about nothing. If you’re into conspiracy theories, this is a pretty good way to get off a plane to the other side of the world, though of course while we joke, it’s ludicrous to take that seriously.

Chris Withrow followed, and the Dodgers are already into Red Patterson before the end of the second. Spring games are just the best.
