How Dodgers’ hitters and pitchers fared ‘After 0-2’

I was listening to a recent episode of Effectively Wild, (Baseball Prospectus podcast), and one topic being discussed was the “After 0-2” split. Sam Miller brought it up and focused on the pitchers, but I’m even more fascinated how the Dodgers’ hitters fared after they got down 0-2. Let’s be clear: These stat lines aren’t…

Yet Another Tough Spring Training For Zack Greinke

So now it’s Zack Greinke we’re worried about, as evidenced by not one but two Dodgers.com articles about his start against the Giants: Greinke struggles, reaches pitch limit in 3 2/3 innings: Dodgers starter Zack Greinke hit his pitch limit after 3 2/3 innings.

Enjoy Your Last Year of Zack Greinke, Probably

I think we knew that, barring serious injury, Zack Greinke was going to exercise his post-2015 opt-out clause from the second he signed his deal back in December of 2012. In fact, I said exactly as much back then: Rosenthal argues (and many fans would agree) that an opt-out is poor for the team, but…
